The Tour de Force was founded in 2002 as a memorial bicycle ride to honor the victims of 9/11. It has evolved into a four day, 275 mile ride, in which 300 law enforcement officers from across the U.S. and abroad, along with some family and friends, participate to raise funds for the families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Each and every participant, support team member and staff, raise funds and put in a lot of work throughout the year to make this event a huge success.
Without the continued support from our generous supporters and their dedication to our cause, this event would not be possible. Thank you for making a special gift, that will enrich the lives of those left behind.
In February of 2011 the City of Poughkeepsie lost one of our own in a line of duty death. Officer John Falcone was killed responding to a domestic incident. After his death the Tour De Force donated money in honor of John to his family. They continue to support the families of Law Enforcement Officers who are killed in the line of duty each year.
I am proud to be able to participate in this for the 5th year and appreciate any and all support that you can give to help this great cause.
