The Hollywood Memorial Ride will come through Wilson County on Tuesday and stop at several locations, including Springdale and West elementary schools.

The Hollywood Memorial Ride is a group of four Los Angeles police officers who bicycle more than 2,980 miles from Hollywood, California to the National Police Week Memorial Services in Washington, D.C.

The goal of the trek is not only to pay tribute to the 146 law enforcement officers who are killed in the line of duty each year on average, but also to raise awareness of their sacrifice and raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

“The four officers have endured tough weather along the stretch of approximately 3,000 miles that included temperatures of more than 100 degrees and storms in their path,” said Wilson County sheriff’s Lt. Scott Moore. “Join us in welcoming these brave officers as they journey through our county [Tuesday] and give them a warm welcome and pray for their safety as they go to Washington, D.C.”
