Spirit of Blue at National Police Week 2015

Spirit of Blue will be returning for a second year of activities during National Police Week in Washington, DC. Along for the ride will be friends of the Foundation, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, who will be bringing along their Krispy Kreme Cruiser to hand out thousands of doughnuts and prizes to those attending events throughout the week.

Here is a list of where we’ll be and what we will be up to:

Tuesday, May 12th
Law Enforcement United Bike Ride Finish
World War II Memorial, 1pm – 3pm

Come by and see the Krispy Kreme Cruiser for free doughnuts and prizes, meet the Spirit of Blue Team and shop the awesome Spirit of Blue branded merchandise to support our continued work across the country.

Wednesday, May 13th
C.O.P.S. National Police Survivors Conference
Hilton Alexandria Mark Center Hotel, 8am – 1pm

This is a special time for us to greet and encourage those families and friends who have lost an officer in the line of duty and try and bring some joy into a week filled with solemn remembrance. Attendees will get doughnuts, prizes and a chance to tour the Krispy Kreme Cruiser amidst hugs of support and thankfulness.

Wednesday, May 13th
National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Candlelight Vigil
National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, 8pm

The opportunity to attend this very special event is one we wouldn’t miss. This year the NLEOMF will be adding 273 names to the wall of the memorial and honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in their service.
