Thank you for visiting our team fundraising page!
The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office’s “Wheels of Justice” team has ridden for the past fifteen years in the Ben to The Shore Bike Tour, a 65-mile bike ride that begins at the base of the Ben Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia and winds through scenic South Jersey to the Atlantic City Boardwalk—all to raise money for children’s charities and the families of fallen first responders. For eleven of those years, “Wheels” has been the top fundraising team of the Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation’s Ben to The Shore Bike Tour—raising more than $140,000.00 in 2023—and winning the John F. Timoney Team Award.
2024 is the 16th anniversary of the “Wheels of Justice” bike team and our goal is to raise $100,000.
Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation was originally established to raise money for various fallen officer associations in the Philadelphia region. Event organizers have since expanded their beneficiaries to include foundations in Montgomery County, including the Fox Children’s Foundation—named for Brad Fox, one of Montgomery County’s own police officers, who died in the line of duty in 2012—and the Montgomery County Hero’s Fund.
This year, the “Wheels” team—comprised of 250 riders from throughout Montgomery County’s Law Enforcement, First Responder Community and their friends and families—will be celebrating its 15th Year Anniversary participating in the Ben to The Shore Bike Tour, scheduled for Sunday, July 21, 2024. District Attorney Kevin Steele will again ride in the 65-mile event and has committed to fielding a team of more than 250 riders on the “Wheels of Justice” team. We are encouraging all police departments and first responders throughout Montgomery County to participate in this fun and well-run event benefitting worthy charities.
Rider registration opens February 2024.
