SHIELD616-Rider Jeremy Myers
Lets go for a little ride... they said. 400 miles / 4 days / lots of laughs / a few flat tires later and lots of energy drinks we had crossed the state of Colorado from border to border! Well, we are doing it again this year and we are moving the route a bit more to the west to get into the mountains a bit more! We will be traveling from the norther border to the southern border and passing thru Frisco, Breckenridge, Fairplay and many other Colorado mountain towns.
So why do we take this little ride thru the mountains.... we do it to support our local law enforcement! Shield616 was formed about 2 years ago by Jake Skifstad to provide law enforcement with better gear to better prepare them for active shooter situations and other scenario's where their everyday gear can not protect them as well as it needs to. Along with better gear for the officers, the purpose of Shield616 is to pair up officers with sponsors in the community who will build a relationship with their officer and be in contact with them on a regular basis. This can be anything from meeting up for a coffee to having them and their family over for dinner or even just praying and being there for moral support for your officer.
So please help me raise money to sponsor one officer this year ($1000) and show law enforcement that we not only support them but we care for them and appreciate all that they do to ensure our community is safe.
