19th Annual Sacramento Law Enforcement Memorial Motorcycle Run To Honor Our "Fallen Officer" | Community
Harley-Davidson of Sacramento proudly presents the 19th Annual Sacramento Law Enforcement Memorial Run.
This year thousands of anticipated riders will ride from the Police and Sheriff Memorial riding along the river and roaring into the City of Isleton.
This event continues to grow as the third largest ride in Northern California, with thousands of riders coming from as far away as Arizona, Nevada, and Washington.
The run has become the primary fundraising event to enable Law Enforcement Chaplaincy-Sacramento to respond and serve our law enforcement families and community members. Support from the business community is vital in keeping our chaplains available to respond 24/7 365 days a year, when anyone has experienced a crisis or tragedy. Additional recipients of this year’s ride proceeds are:
California Peace Officers Memorial, Police & Sheriff Memorial Foundation, programs to help our law enforcement departments and communities such as Courage To Be You (C2BU) - stopping child sex trafficking.
Our ride this year will begin at the Police & Sheriff Memorial, 500 Arden Way at 8:00AM (registration) on Saturday, July 28st. After a brief memorial ceremony, remembering our fallen officers, we will begin the beautiful ride down to the little historic delta town of Isleton. Isleton will be welcoming and hosting thousands of riders and family members with good food, good music and good fun, Live Auction, Fun for the whole family! Your contribution of coupons, prizes, and gifts to the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy-Sacramento for the silent Auction will help cover the costs.
The evening before, Friday, July 27th, will be the pre-registration party from 5pm-8pm at Sac Harley, 1000 Arden Way, Spider Band, Food and Fun.
~NEW THIS YEAR ~ Motorcycle Honor Guard to honor the legacy of one of our fallen heroes.
The Motorcycle Honor Guard is a select group of riders that will escort the pack from the Police and Sheriff Memorial to Isleton. Each Honor Guard Rider will fly a flag with the name of the fallen officer that they choose to represent.
