OUR MISSION - Through charity events, provide financial support to various charity organizations that provide support to families of Arizona first responders killed in the line of duty.
OUR VISION - To hold annual charity motorcycle rides throughout Arizona to honor and never allow fallen first responders be forgotten.
During 2019 our goal is to honor the thirty Arizona Department for Public Safety officers killed in the line of duty and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Department with a charity memorial motorcycle ride throughout Arizona. All net proceeds will be donated to the Concerns of Police Survivors, Arizona Chapter a 501(c)(3) organization.
We have a growing list of raffle/door prizes to give away, including a 2019 Honda motorcycle, four guns (working on a 5th gun), airlines tickets from Southwest Airlines, two night stay in Las Vegas and many more.
