Santa Clara Valley Peace Officers Memorial Run (# 2617)19-May-2007
(Saturday)55 West Younger Ave, San Jose, CA
The Santa Clara Valley Peace Officers Memorial Run organization sponsors a charitable fundraising motor ride event that honors peace officers who have sacrificed their lives while in the line of duty, serving the citizens of Santa Clara County.Proceeds from the event provide support to the children and spouses of those officers who have fallen in the line of duty. In addition, scholarships for deserving high school students in Santa Clara and San Benito Counties are awarded in honor and memory of those officers.The Memorial Run has fast become one of the largest motorcycle events in the Bay Area. The idea was conceived in June 2000, and was organized by dedicated police personnel who volunteered their time. This first run was held on May 19, 2001, with approximately 800 bikes participating. The 2002 event had more than 1500 motorcycles, and, in 2003 and 2004, the number doubled to more than 3000 bikes. The Memorial Run is still organized and operated entirely by volunteer police officers and non-sworn personnel.
