GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Police Unity Tour Walker team will benefit from fundraisers at four sites around the Grand Rapids area Tuesday.

Every year police officers around America prepare for a marathon bicycle journey with one purpose in mind — riding for those who died. It’s call the Police Unity Tour. Their goal is to raise awareness and financial support for the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund.

Tuesday there will be a big fundraiser for the Walker team, which two years ago lost officer Trevor Slot in the line of duty.

From 5 to 9 p.m., anyone who presents the accompanying flier will see 15 percent of their bill donated to the cause.

The fundraisers will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. at Uccello’s locations in Standale (Lake Michigan Drive), Grand Rapids (Beltline Avenue SE), Caledonia (Broadmoor Avenue SE) and Grandville (Rivertown Parkway).

    If anyone donates one dime of their hard earned money to the police, they should be ashamed. They already take enough of our money through speeding tickets and other bull**** like that. The cops don't need more money to pull citizens over

      Read the article. Not a dime goes to the police department. It is a fundraiser to honor the 19,000 plus officers who have been killed in the line of duty in this country. Every one of them have their name on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC, which by the was is THE ONLY memorial park in DC that doesn't get a penny from the Government. It is operated and maintained by donations.
