2017 Tour de Force Memorial Ride

Boston to NYC to raise funds for those left behind Learn More

Hi Friends and Family

This will be my 3rd full year participating in The Tour de Force Memorial Ride.  I originally came to know this charity when my brother Bill Pontious passed away in late July of 2014. Bill was a big part of The TDF family and these men and women have now become my family as well. 

TDF originally began to raise funds for those that died on 9/11, and it is always held during this time frame in remembrance of that tragic day. Over the years the charity has  began to focus on families of law enforcement officers who are killed in the line of duty. So when you donate, this is what your money is going towards. It is given to enrich the lives of families who are left behind. 

As many of you know , Bill was a 30 year Veteran Police Officer who died way too young of a heart condition he was unaware of. But what many of you may not know, is that it was Bill who told me to get my... you know what together and encouraged me to take the job withThe CT Department of Corrections (1988-2008) from which I am now retired. 

Last year, I was honored to submit the name of a Correction Officers family to receive funds and within days, a check was delivered to this family.

So it is with my sincere hope that many of you will find a way to sponsor me for this ride. Give a little or a lot, it doesn't matter because it all adds up.

Thank you for having my six and follow along on my Facebook page as The Ride draws near!
