Eisenhower MS Annual Student Unity Tour Raises Funds for Roxbury Police

Landing \ Roxbury News

Seventh and eighth graders from Eisenhower Middle School participated in its second annual EMS Student Unity Tour yesterday afternoon under clear skies and warm weather at Horseshoe Lake Park.

Over 270 middle schoolers and some staff rode their bikes and cheered on their classmates to raise money for the National Police Unity Tour.

Police UnityStudent riders had the option to ride one lap (1.75 miles) or two laps (3.5 miles) around Horseshoe Lake Park to honor Police Officers that had fallen in the line of duty. EMS students were fortunate enough to ride alongside many of the local police officers that participated in the National Unity Tour a few weeks ago to Washington, D.C.

This event was started last year at the school through the Character Education Committee and has continued to grow with participation and enthusiasm.

New this year, in an effort to eliminate possible obstacles of getting the bicycles to the school, students were able to drop them off the evening before while having a meet and greet for the students and their families with the Roxbury law enforcement officers. Both had a chance to meet over some dessert and coffee while making cheer signs to be used to motivate the riders.

Students, staff, and officers gathered at Horseshoe Lake for a brief opening ceremony led by Heather Roddy, EMS Physical Education Teacher and event coordinator.

Special thanks went out to local businesses and groups that took part in this year’s event. Those named were Anthony & Sons, Burrini’s in Randolph, Legends Ale House, LaStrada, the Roxbury Police Department, the Roxbury Rotary, Marty’s Bikes, and DJ Chris D’Amico. Additional thanks went out to individuals who helped bring this event to fruition.

This year’s EMS Student Unity Tour raised more than $6,000 for the National Police Unity Tour. These funds will be used to send three to four Roxbury Police Officers on the tour next year.

According to the Police Unity Tour CEO and Founder Patrick Montuore and Harry Phillips, Executive Director, “Every year hundreds of law enforcement officers die in the line of duty. Nothing can ever replace them to their family and friends. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. allows for their memories to live on and honors these men and women forever.”

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial recently broke ground in Washington, D.C.

If you would like to offer support for this EMS event in the future, please reach out to Heather Roddy (hroddy@roxbury.org) and Shannon Rodas (srodas@roxbury.org) at Eisenhower Middle School.

About the Police Unity Tour

The Police Unity Tour Incorporated was formed in 1997 by a group of law enforcement officers from New Jersey who rode their bicycles from Florham Park, NJ to the Memorial in Washington, D.C. with the purpose of raising awareness of those law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty and financial support for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum. Since 1997, the Police Unity Tour has grown to include nine chapters and over 2,300 members nationwide.
