Shield 616- Ride Brad Whittle

Shield 616- Ride Brad Whittle

On November 27th 2015, tragedy struck our community in Colorado Springs. A deranged killer opened fire on police and civilians. Three people lost their lives including an officer. Sadly, that police officer would be alive today if he had a better bulletproof vest.

I had no idea that standard issue police protection only stopped small caliber bullets. Under-funded police departments across the country struggle with this problem. It wasn’t until last year when my brother-in-law, Nathan McCrary, teamed up with Shield 616 to raise money that I became aware of the issue.

I’m riding across Colorado – from border to border – to raise money and raise awareness that we need to do more to protect those that protect us every day. It’s more than a worthy cause! Click here to read more about the challenge: http://shield616.org/about-us/

Every $1,000 raised will equip one officer with a state-of-the-art vest – capable of stopping high caliber rounds. 100% of the proceeds go directly to Shield 616 to purchase a vest for a specific officer.

Help make a difference and join me in making a donation! I’ll ride with all the names of the donors in my jersey pocket so you can take a virtual journey with me (don’t worry – no way to send my sweat to you virtually J). Every dollar you contribute will give back a truly life-saving gift to our police community!

Thank you!! The ride begins at the Wyoming border on September 7th and will end at the New Mexico border September 10th.
