2019 Arizona Fallen Hero Memorial Ride

OUR VISIONTo hold annual motorcycle rides throughout Arizona to honor fallen First Responders.

HOW ARE WE HELPING – All net proceeds from our rides are donated to nonprofit organization focused on providing assistance to the families of our Fallen First Responders.

A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT US – The AZFHMR was established in 2018 by two retires from the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS). Our initial thought was to have a memorial motorcycle ride to honor the 30 DPS officers killed in the line of duty. In 2019, with the support of DPS command staff, our memorial ride evolved into multi-day rides throughout Arizona where we held memorial ceremonies for the fallen officers, celebrated the 50th Anniversary of DPS. Each ride concluded with a catered barbeque.

During each of the rides, we averaged over 100 registered motorcycle riders and other participants. We raised over $43,000 dollars in cash donations and raffle prizes. Among the raffle prizes we gave away were a motorcycle, 4 guns, Southwest Airline travel vouchers, hotel stays in Las Vegas and Laughlin. All net money raised was donated to the Concerns of Police Survivors Arizona Chapter.
