On Thursday, the first annual Blue Valor Run will begin its trek from Ground Zero to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.
More than 120 police officers from across the country are slated to participate in the one-day motorcycle ride honoring the 72 officers who lost their lives during 9/11 and all officers who have died in the line of duty.
The trip that will cover 226 miles was organized by The P.O. Ken Tietjen Memorial Foundation in cooperation with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and the Twin Towers Initiative.
Volunteers participating in the ride have also helped raise more than $80,000 in support of The P.O. Ken Tietjen Memorial Foundation and the NLEOMF.
