The event was organized to honor the memory of fallen Rochester Police Department Officer and Fairport resident, Anthony (Tony) Mazurkiewicz.

There was no registration fee, however we asked participants to make a donation to the New York Law Enforcement Assistance Program, known as NYLEAP. Funds raised go to members of law enforcement and their families to provide mental health services.
The ride began in Fairport, travel throughout the eastside of Monroe County, and end back in Fairport. .

About NYLEAP -- NYLEAP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our services are offered at no charge to individuals who serve as first responders, and their families (i.e. law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical services personnel, correction officers, and dispatchers). NYLEAP was created by peers, for peers; and, after serving over 40 years combined as first responders, it became apparent that there is a huge void when it comes to our law enforcement officers’—and all first responders’—mental health. The statistics are continuing to grow at alarming rates in terms of number of deaths by suicide; along with the frequency of PTSD, cumulative trauma, alcohol/substance use disorders, and other mental health concerns that may be caused by the day-to-day stress and trauma from the job. In 2020, the number of reported deaths by suicide in law enforcement outnumbered felonious line of duty deaths by more than 3 times
