Fallen Officers Bike Race and 5K - Saturday, October 15, 2016
An officer is killed in the line of duty every 61 hours. Throughout history, there have been more line of duty deaths in the State of Texas than any other state or territory. Since January 1 of this year, 71 officers have been killed in the line of duty across the nation, including 15 from Texas.
The Texas Police Chiefs Association's Officer Survivor Fund provides monetary assistance to Texas families of fallen heroes within 24 hours following an officer’s line of duty death.
The Fallen Officers Bike Race is a community event that take place at The Shops at Highland Village. Activities include a 5K run, civilian bike race, and a police bike race. There is live music, demonstrations, raffle prizes, silent auction, a kids zone, food, and drinks throughout the day.
Last year, we raised $22,000 for the Officer Survivor Fund, help us reach our goal of $30,000 this year!
