Rotary Donation to Police Unity Tour

Clubs and Organizations

April 11, 2014

From: Parsippany Area Chamber Of Commerce

The Parsippany Rotary Club made a generous donation to the 2014 Police Unity Tour. Following a presentation about the Police Unity Tour and its support of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial the Parsippany Rotary doubled its planned donation from $250 to $500. In May 1997 the Police Unity Tour was organized, by Officer Patrick P. Montuore of the Florham Park Police Department, with the hope of bringing public awareness of Police Officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. What started with 18 riders on a four day fund-raising bicycle ride from Florham Park to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. has grown into eight Chapters consisting of nearly 1700 members nationwide who make the trip annually.
