Retired, current officers bike to honor fallen comrades

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

They're honoring the fallen and remembering the survivors.

"Law Enforcement United" made their way through the east Tuesday.

Every year the group, which is made up of retired and current officers and survivors, makes the lengthy trip from Georgia to Washington, D.C.

The catch…they do it all on bicycles!

It's all part of "Law Enforcement Officers Week." On Tuesday, they made a special stop in Greenville.

"They presented me with a bracelet. One of the riders is riding in honor of Officer Jason Campbell, who was a Greenville officer,  and that just froze me in my tracks when they presented me with that," said Greenville Police Chief, Hassan Aden.

Each of the bikers had to raise at least $1,300 to participate in the ride. The money goes entirely to the families of fallen officers.

Their journey will end in D.C. next week.
