In May, as part of Law Enforcement United - The Long Ride, I was given Officer Fadi Shukur as my riding assignment. I was honored to have worn it cycling from St. Louis to Washington D.C. and then again this past week in the Cycle Across Illinois. It has been on my wrist for more than 1,500 miles.

I will continue to tell this small part of his story and wear a duplicate bracelet in his honor every year I ride. This hero will never be forgotten.
