"We Ride for Those Who Died"

The Wisconsin Riders team of the Police Unity Tour is comprised of over 25 law enforcement officers and survivors of fallen law enforcement officers from all over Wisconsin. Each May the team joins approximately 1,800 other law enforcement officers from around the country to ride over 300 miles from Philadelphia  and other cities on the East Coast to Washington D.C. 

In addition to the large amount of fundraising required, riders participating the in Police Unity Tour sacrifice a significant amount of personal time to participate in the ride and in support of the year around activities of the team.

Support members provide logistical assistance to the Wisconsin Riders and the Police Unity Tour during the ride. These team members are also required to raise the same funds as riders.  The Wisconsin Riders team could not function without their support during the ride.
