The 2019 Brotherhood Ride concluded their 7-day, 600-mile trip through Florida at 5 PM on October 26, 2019, in front of the City of Fort Myers Police Department. Starting in Titusville, Florida they rode north to Jacksonville, then south through the center of the state finishing in Downtown Fort Myers.
Almost 40 riders along with support crews made the trip to remember 19 Officers, Firefighters and K-9’s who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their communities in 2018. That list includes FMPD Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller, who, on July 28, 2018, was struck down while serving bravely in the line of duty.
Chief Derrick Diggs paid tribute to his memory and thanked the riders for their dedication to the mission of raising funds for the families of fallen first responders. FMPD Lt Roger Valdivia
