Logo Contest Official Rules

The Officer Down Memorial Ride (ODMR) is an all-day event centered around a 60-mile motorcycle ride and features live music, food, and raffles. The event is held to raise awareness of law enforcement line of duty deaths. The ODMR benefits the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP), a national, non-profit organization based in Fairfax, VA that honors the memories and sacrifices of the more than 25,000 law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty in our nation’s history. In the last few years, ODMR has attracted over 1,000 riders and participants and raised over $300,000 to support the Officer Down Memorial Page and other law enforcement causes.
