THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF STU - Each year a group of bicycle riders representing Police Agencies throughout Orange County (California) join together to commemorate the lives of those Orange County Police officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The riders do this by cycling 630 miles from Sacramento to Orange County to raise money for Project 999. Riders participate in this event on their own time.
Past Redline Pro champion and current OC Sherriff STU THOMSEN is training for the Project 999 Memorial Ride that begins on May 7.
Forty-eight peace officers from 20 different law enforcement agencies have died in the line of duty in Orange County, and each of these officers left behind a family in need. The Sheriff's Advisory Council / Project 999 was established to help the financially vulnerable family of a fallen officer with unexpected expenses and to make sure the family is not left to fend for itself.
For yet another year, Stompin' Stu will be part of a cycling team that will raise money for Project 999 by cycling from the State Peace Officers Memorial in Sacramento to the Orange County Peace Officers Memorial in Santa Ana . The team is comprised of approximately 40+ officers, each one representing an officer that has been killed in the line of duty.
The goal is to raise at least $45,000 for the fund--which will be available to the family of any peace officer killed or injured in the line of duty in Orange County . I hope you agree that this is a worthy cause and that this event deserves our support. Donations are tax-deductible. Last year we raised $40,000.00, with the help of the cycling World, I know that we can exceed that amount.
Stu and Redline thank you in advance for your support of this great cause.
