Here is a poem for all those who we have lost.


“In The Line of Duty”

I Never thought that it would be me,
my name here for all of Eternity.
Recorded here at this hallowed place,
alas my name, no more face.
“In The Line Of Duty” I heard them say,
My family now paying the price to pay.
My folded flag stained with tears,
We only had those few short years.
The badge no longer on my chest,
I sleep now in eternal rest.
My sword I pass to those behind.
And pray they keep this thought in mind.
I never dreamed that it would be me.
And with a heavy heart and a bent knee,
I ask for all here from the past…
……. 
 
Dear God, let my name be the last.

If not for the efforts of Fred Georgoulis, Steve Baglioni, and CBS Radio this song would not have been possible.


Since the tragedies that occurred in Boston on Marathon Monday 2013, we have been reaching out to all local law enforcement agencies and inviting them to join the ride. As you all know, Officer Sean Collier of the MIT Police Department was shot and killed while on duty by the same cowards responsible for the Boston bombings. One of Officer Collier’s strongest passions was supporting the Jimmy Fund and all they do. We love seeing the heavy police turnout, year after year, to honor Officer Collier and help support the cause he believed in so deeply. Our hope is that this ride will continue to be an annual event to show the world Boston is Biker Strong. So sign up, and be a part of history! 100% of the proceeds go to benefit Dana Farber and The Jimmy Fund.
Officer Sean Collier

We are hoping Police Departments will encourage their Officers
to pay tribute to a fallen brother.
Veterans and Police Officers will get a free patch.

Thank you for your time and we hope to see you on August 13st, 2017.
Sincerely,
Fred Georgoulis
