Law Enforcement United 'Ride to Hope' Bike Ride

The following information was sent to us by The Prince William Police Department Officer Jonathan L. Perok:

The Prince William Police Department is honored to take part in the annual Law Enforcement United Ride which is scheduled to take place May 9th through the 12th of this year. The ride stretches over 250 miles, starting in Chesapeake and ending in Washington D.C. just in time for the annual Police Week festivities which take place near and around the Law Enforcement Memorial in D.C. The mission of the ride is two fold, to raise money for C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors) and ODMP (the Officer Down Memorial Page) and also to honor fellow officers who have fallen in the line of duty.

All money given to C.O.P.S. will go towards programs designed to help the family members of fallen officers cope with their loss.

Prince William Ice Center to Host Hundreds of Visitors this Weekend

From Discover PWC:

Prince William, VA- The Prince William Ice Center (5180 Dale Blvd, Woodbridge, VA 22193) will play host to about 1,000 skaters, families, officials and spectators from around the country this weekend during a national speedskating competition.

The Prince William Ice Center was selected to host the event because of its Olympic-size rink, proximity to area airports and because it has the capacity to hold spectators, said Alison Mittelstadt, event committee member for the U.S. Junior National Short-Track Speedskating competition. Speedskating is also growing in popularity in the greater Washington area, she said, with about one-third of the participants coming from the D.C. region.

This is the first national event the Prince William Ice Center has hosted since it reopened in September. The rink was forced to shut down in February 2010 after its roof collapsed due to heavy snowfall.
