2014 COPS Motorcycle Ride to be Held Sunday

Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- The 2014 COPS Motorcycle Ride will be led by Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis this Sunday beginning at 8 a.m. This year’s ride will be in memory of Tony R. Sterling, a long time supporter of the Maryland COPS chapter.

The motorcycle ride will leave from the Salisbury Motor Vehicle Administration under a police escort and will travel to various locations on the shore and in Annapolis. The riders will then meet with other motorcycle escorts that will take them to Upper Marlboro, Md. Food and refreshments will be provided to all participants.

The event cost is $25 which includes a COPS Ride T-Shirt and a catered lunch.

The Maryland Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, which is a 501 (c) 3 Federal IRS recognized tax deduction, has many programs and services for survivors including survivor seminars, scholarships, peer support, counseling programs, trial and parole support, death benefit information and other assistance programs.

Since the first COPS RIDE started in 2000, 58 Maryland Law Enforcement Officers have given their lives in the “Line of Duty”. The money raised with each years’ COPS RIDE goes to help the families of these officers.
