The 22nd Annual Sacramento Law Enforcement “Fallen Officer” Ride is quickly approaching. This year, it will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2015. We invite you to join us as we honor our Sacramento County Sheriff Deputy Danny P. Oliver who was killed on October 24, 2014. We will also be remembering the tenth anniversary of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department helicopter crashed that happened on July 13, 2005, about 7:10 p.m, just north of the Nimbus Dam near Lake Natoma. The pilot, Joseph Kievernagel, a 17-year veteran, and co-pilot, Kevin Blount, a 7-year veteran, died in the crash. A third deputy, Eric Henrikson, a 7-year veteran, suffered life-changing injuries.
There are great opportunities to support this Ride by becoming a sponsor, riding with us, donating a raffle prize, or becoming a warrior guard and raising monies to hold the Flag and ride in the front of the line to our destination.
Please consider joining us and financially supporting this Ride. This is a fundraiser in which we support the Police & Sheriff Memorial Foundation ceremony held in May, as well as supporting all the men and women in law enforcement that are in harms’ way, every day.
Contact our office at 916.978.0296 or you can go to www.fallenofficersride.org to donate and sign up. Thank you for helping us, our law enforcement families.
