For the past 11 years, Bryan has bicycled the 230 miles from Richmond, VA into Washington DC as part of the Police Unity Tour to raise awareness of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Not only does Bryan bicycle the route, he chooses to ride the back of the group to mentally and physically push other riders so that they may complete their journey as well. Bryan then meets family members of fallen officers at the NLEOM to pay his respects, to let them know their loved one will never be forgotten and to provide an escort to the family members into the Candlelight Vigil.
Bryan's mission, like every member of the Police Unity Tour, is to ensure the memory of fallen law enforcement officers is never forgotten. Bryan is there to give any support he can to the families of our fallen hero's, even if it is just to hear their story.
Bryan's impact is best told in story. One year while at the NLEOM, Bryan sat next to two men who were clearing grieving. Bryan listened, gave encouraging words, listened some more and eventually parted ways. Months later, Bryan was contacted by one of those men who thanked him for that day at the Memorial; that it made a difference.
Bryan gives so much of himself by being there for the family members, for co-workers and for the departments who lose officers in the line of duty. He does this so their memory is never forgotten.
The Police Unity Tour donates the money it raised to the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC. These funds are used for the upkeep and maintenance of the memorial.
