Texas Wheels of Justice, a nonprofit that raises money for the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, has made a $7,500 donation to the Texas Peace Officers Memorial Foundation.
Members of the organization, including civilians, participate in the 300-mile Police Unity Tour bike ride that ends on the nation's capital and coincides with National Police Week. But the group also organizes a charity event in Conroe called The Heroes' Ride. The next one is in October and you can register here.
Part of the money raised at the most recent Heroes' Ride was given to the POMF, which provides college scholarships for children of Texas peace officers.
"We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship that gives us the opportunity to help preserve the legacy of the men and women who who have laid down their lives in the service of others," Wheels President Eric Gray said in the letter announcing the donation.
