Last year, this multi-day event raised $2.6 million, and officers hope to top that this year.
"If you think about what we do, riding for those officers who can no longer ride, they've been lost in the line of duty, one of the things our money does is it goes toward their memorial wall and the memorial is the only memorial in Washington, D.C. that inscribes new names every year," says Maggie DeBoard, the chief of Herndon police.
The officers will conclude Thursday’s leg of the ride in the evening at the DoubleTree Hotel in Albemarle County. They will resume their ride Friday morning and head to Warrenton.
The ride is set to wrap up Saturday, May 11, at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.
If you drive by these riders, share the road and give them a wave.
