  Riding and Running For Our Fallen Heroes

Sep 22, 2017 11:18 ET

DRPS members joining a contingent of runners and riders travelling to Ottawa for the National Police and Peace Officers Memorial in support of fallen officers.

Cyclists will ride over 700 kilometres while runners will cover over 460 kilometres before reaching the nation's capital on Sunday. There they will join thousands to honour those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The annual service is held the last Sunday of every September on Parliament Hill.

This year, Durham Regional Police committed a team of runners to be part of the relay team participating in the 460 kilometre run. DRPS cyclists are taking part in the biking leg of the journey.

These members are proud to represent DRPS in honouring the more than 860 colleagues in the law enforcement community who have fallen in the line of duty. Their names are engraved on the Honour Roll tablets along the perimeter wall on Parliament Hill.
