Vada Murray Task Force
Vada Murray was an athlete all his life including playing for Bo Schembechler for the University of Michigan from 1986-1990 winning 3 Rose Bowls during this time at Michigan. Rather than playing professional football Vada chose to dedicate his life to public service by becoming a police officer for the City of Ann Arbor where he proudly served 21 years. In 2008 Vada was unexpectedly diagnosed with advanced lung cancer at the age of 41. Neither Vada nor his parents ever smoked. He endured months of chemotherapy and physical and emotional pain but remained determined to win the battle against this unexpected and unfair opponent. Tragically, Vada passed away on April 6th, 2011 at the age of 43. Sarah is aggressively raising awareness and money in order to find a cure for environmental related cancers.

Police Unity Tour
Each year, to honor law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, over 2000 police cyclists ride from the East Coast to Washington DC for Police Week. The route traverses 300 miles rain or shine, escorted by police motor officers from around the country. I am again honored to ride with Team West Michigan, organized by the Grand Rapids Police Department, my uncle and grandfather's former agency. My current agency, Nevada Highway Patrol, has also graciously allowed me to ride for our fallen troopers.
