Reading, PA (May 15, 2012) – Elbeco, Inc. is proud to announce that it has signed on for the second year as the a major  of “Team Sac PD,” a group of law enforcement officers bicycling 3,000 miles across the United States to raise funds and awareness for the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, DC.   

 

Team Sac PD will participate in The Race Across America, a national coast-to-coast bicycle race set for June 16 – 25, 2012.  The team will use the race as a platform to honor the over 19,000 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty by carrying their names, visiting local and state memorials, and encouraging media coverage of their efforts.  They also will solicit funds for the National Law Enforcement Memorial, so that those whose lives have been lost can be properly recognized.    

 

“As a longtime supporter of the law enforcement community and having personally met the men and women of Team Sac PD, I and Elbeco are pleased to sponsor Team Sac PD again this year,” said Elbeco President, David Lurio.  “Elbeco encourages all of our customers, partners, friends and family to support this important initiative” adds Lurio.   All funds donated will support the National Law Enforcement Memorial.  To learn more about Team Sac PD and how you can donate, please visit http://www.sacpd.org/teamsacpd/raam/. 

 

In 2011, Team SacPD exceeded the projected race time by over half a day, crossing the finish line in Annapolis, Maryland in 6 days, 6 hours, and 8 minutes. The team’s goal for 2012 is to not only improve on their 2011 team time, but also bring greater attention and contributions to the National Memorial.  Team Sac PD encourages all to join them in their efforts by supporting them on their journey, either in person or virtually via their website, http://www.sacpd.org/teamsacpd/raam/follow.html.  The team departs Oceanside Pier, Oceanside, California on Saturday June 16, 2012, and is expected to arrive at the City Dock, Annapolis MD on or about June 22, 2012.  A listing of planned stops throughout the race can be found at the Race Across America website, http://www.raceacrossamerica.org/raam/raam2.php?N_webcat_id=24.
