Marana policemen and Pima County Sheriff's Deputies are taking to their bikes to raise money for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, which raises awareness of officers who have died in the line of duty.

Marana police officer Brad Clifford and Sgt. Will Hess, as well as Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Sergeants Joe Knipp and Terry Staten, will ride in the 250-mile course, which goes from Portsmouth, Va. to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. The ride is May 9.
