Shield 616-Rider Rick Jacobs
Why I Ride for Shield 616
My name is Rick Jacobs and I'm biking from the northern to southern border of Colorado to raise money and awareness to outfit police officers with the Shield 616 Armor Package. Our police officers risk their lives every day and this package can save an officers life and bring them home safe to their family
When I first heard about this my thought was – well they are issued body armor right? I found out that basic issue armor will stop small caliber weapons but most local police forces do not have the budget to outfit all officers with armor to stop high caliber weapons. Every 1,000 dollars raised will outfit one officer with the Shield 616 package and 100% of the proceeds go directly to Shield 616. Another great thing with this charity is the community outreach between the officers and the community.

Please join me in supporting the Shield 616 cycling group as we bike across Colorado in September to support those who keep us safe. The ride will begin on the Wyoming border and end 4 days later September 10th in New Mexico.
