We love to feature local heroes in our Awesome Sauce. Today we honor Chad Van Dam and all his colleagues riding their BICYCLES 200+ miles to support our local law enforcement.
Chad and his comrades ride in the Police Unity Tour every May to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty. They also ride to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial and Museum.
The 200+ mile bike ride from New Jersey to Washington, DC started in 1999 with just 18 members. They raised $18,000. This past May there were over 2500 riders and over $2.6 million!!!
