TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – The Wabash Valley Jeep Junkies hosted a fundraiser to benefit the Terre Haute Police Department’s Fallen Officers Memorial.
Over 150 jeeps gathered at the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 157 where they would begin a ride through various checkpoints.
Some checkpoints include the Brent Long Memorial Way, the Rob Pitts Memorial Way and the Terre Haute Police Department.
Tammy Meng help put the event together and she said that it’s important to pay tribute to fallen officers.
“When an officer goes out in the field, they are not guaranteed to come back to their family,” Meng said. “It is important to show them that we have them and they all have us.”
