Hi everyone, This is my second year racing for Team BlueLine and I couldn't be more excited.
I'm looking for your help... any amount is gladly accepted and appreciated.
Team BlueLine is a 501C3 non profit that raises money for families of officers killed or injured in the line of duty.
How many times have you seen on tv or read in the paper about Officers killed in the line of duty? Have you ever asked yourself how you can help? After the funeral and the officer is laid to rest, the family is left with a shattered world to rebuild. We here at Team BlueLine want to help with the rebuilding of lives and the giving of financial provisions to help during the process.
One of the ways Team BlueLine raises money is through Team BlueLine Racing. Team BlueLine Racing is made up of active and retired Law Enforcement officers, spouses, family members, and friends that are supportive of the cause. Team BlueLine Racing competes in Triathlons, Cycling Races, Road Races, and many other events in place of the heroes who have their given all in the line of duty.
Each year Team BlueLine Racing looks to support and fund raise for a family that has lost a hero, and team members will hold the TBL Flag as they cross the finish line to honor that hero.
Last year , as I crossed finish lines of my races proudly waving my Thin Blue Line Flag, it changed me forever. The cheers when from "Go Sue!" to shouts of support for law enforcement and the officers who lay down their lives for us, for me, every day. It was bigger than anything I had ever experienced.
I will be dedicating my 2018 race season and fundraising for the family of Detective Kristen Hearne, Polk County Police Department, GA. EOW Sep 29,2017. Detective Kristen Hearne was shot and killed as she and another officer responded to reports of a stolen vehicle. Detective Hearne served in law enforcement for 10 years. Her tenure included the Floyd County Sheriff's Department and later the Polk County Police Department for five years. She is survived by her husband and 3-year-old son, her parents, brothers, stepmother, and grandparents. Please help me in showing our support to this amazing family.
Team BlueLine- “For those who gave all”
