Hello! My name is Matt Drobney. I am a police officer for the City of East Moline, IL. I have been proudly serving my community for 10 years. I truly enjoy what I do. I strive to give a positive impact and be a positive role model, not only for my department, but for the community I help keep safe. I am an IRONMAN triathlete, cyclist, family man, and proud brother in blue. This year I am proud to be a part of Team BlueLine and race for my brothers who cannot. It will be so gratifying to cross the finish line at IM Racine 70.3, IM Steelhead 70.3, and IM Louisville 140.6 wearing the Team BlueLine colors. Please take a moment to read what Team BlueLine is all about, and who it will benefit with any donations. INSPIRATION, MOTIVATION, DEDICATION. Team BlueLine is a Non-Profit Foundation with the goal of raising money to help the families of law enforcement officers who have selflessly given their lives in the line of duty. One of the ways we raise money is through Team BlueLine Racing. Members of our Racing Team participate in triathlons, cycling races, road races, and trail runs across the United States. We race in place of the officers who are no longer able, because their lives were taken too soon. We honor the fallen by finishing each race with a blue flag that represents the premature loss of a law enforcement officer. When an officer dies in the line of duty, the family is left with a shattered world that they must try to rebuild. We, at Team BlueLine, want to help these families and loved ones rebuild their lives by providing financial provisions to aid their pain. Team BlueLine desires to love and care for the families left behind. Please consider giving to this cause. Every Donation Helps Restore a Family Suffering an Irreparable Loss!
