About This Event
A memorial motorcycle ride benefitting the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation. The Foundation, established in 2004, created the Gold Star Families Memorial and Park, a lasting tribute to officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting and serving the citizens of Chicago. In 2007, the Mission beyond the Memorial began, assisting the families of fallen officers as well as those disabled in the line of duty.

When & Where
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen Chicago police heroes. The Foundation provides support and financial assistance to the families of Chicago Police Officers who were killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty. We have already completed, and now maintain, the nation’s finest police memorial in Gold Star Families Memorial and Park located on our lakefront. Now the Mission Beyond the Memorial continues the tradition of loyalty and generosity of the Chicago Police Department and focuses on the needs of the men and women of this great department, and their families. To date, the CPMF has donated over $7.8 million to such police families.
