GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Police Unity Tour Walker team will benefit from fundraisers at four sites around the Grand Rapids area Tuesday.

Every year police officers around America prepare for a marathon bicycle journey with one purpose in mind — riding for those who died. It’s call the Police Unity Tour. Their goal is to raise awareness and financial support for the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund.

Tuesday there will be a big fundraiser for the Walker team, which two years ago lost officer Trevor Slot in the line of duty.

From 5 to 9 p.m., anyone who presents the accompanying flier will see 15 percent of their bill donated to the cause.

The fundraisers will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. at Uccello’s locations in Standale (Lake Michigan Drive), Grand Rapids (Beltline Avenue SE), Caledonia (Broadmoor Avenue SE) and Grandville (Rivertown Parkway).
