HPD Bike Relay Team does it again!
Leukemia is the no. 1 child killing disease. Ten times as many adults as children are stricken with leukemia. Lymphoma rates have nearly doubled since the 1970's. Police officers always want to "catch a killer" and the Houston Police Department (HPD) Bicycle Relay Team's goal is to "arrest these killers" and accelerate The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's fight against blood cancers.
The Houston Police Bicycle Relay Team began their 1,800 mile bike ride in Houston and ended five days later in Providence, Rhode Island, travelling through the Smoky Mountains, crossing the Mississippi River and finally to their destination on the east coast. This was an unparalleled volunteer effort to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
