Penrith policewoman to ride for charity awareness

April 22, 2017 by  

Chief Inspector Tracy Stone of the Penrith local area command will join in this year’s annual 300 kilometre Remembrance Ride from Sydney to Canberra, to raise awareness for the NSW Police Legacy.

Chief Inspector Stone – the highest ranking female officer in her Penrith LAC – is a keen cyclist and has been training locally. The charity is close to the hearts of many in the NSW community as it supports police members both past and present, as well as taking care of the families of deceased police workers.

Stone says:

“As a mother it is important that my kids are looked after should anything unfortunate happen during my career.”

This year’s event will be the fifth, and takes place from April 28 – 30, with overnight stops in Mittagong and Goulburn. No doubt there will be banner printing to mark the ceremonies at the start and end of the ride, and signs at the two overnight stops. Printed advertising in the form of flyers along the route will create awareness of the charity among the communities through which the riders will pass.

The three-day ride is open to interested cyclists, but numbers will be limited to 100. The cost to join in is $300 which covers the facilities for the ride. Non-riders may contribute via the charity’s PoliceBank Sponsorship page.
