Wall to Wall Ride for Remembrance

The annual Wall to Wall Ride for Remembrance is a national ride from police memorials around the country to the National Police Memorial in Canberra. The ride commemorates the lives of police who have died on duty or as a result of their work as well as raising funds for Police Legacies around Australia and promoting motorcycle safety awareness.

The National ceremony was held in Canberra on Saturday 13th September 2014.  Victorian riders departed from the Victoria Police Memorial on Friday 12th September.  The riders were farewelled by Deputy Commissioner Graeme Ashton. The baton was handed to Jack Bartlett a young Victorian Police legatee who rode as a pillion passenger and took the baton to Canberra where it was placed on the national memorial. Over 1500 riders from across Australia took part in the event and raised money for Police Legacy in all states and territories. 

Also joining in the ride was Hannah Meldrum a young police legatee from Victoria who took the baton last year, and Glenda Hobden the widow of Senior Constable David Hobden whose name was added to the Victoria Police Memorial and the National Police Memorial in Canberra this year.
