Goulburn Post: Hume Police District raises more than $6k for Police Legacy

Officers from the Hume Police District raised more than $6000 for Police Legacy on the weekend.

At 12am on November 15 off-duty officers donned their walking shoes, cycling attire and geared up for a 24-hour marathon at the Goulburn Velodrome.

The dedicated coppers walked, ran and rode bicycles for 24-hours continuously in teams throughout the day.

Officer-in-charge at Goulburn Police Station Inspector Matt Hinton said the charity was very important and helped families who had made the ultimate sacrifice.

He said Police Legacy supported families who had lost someone through service to the community as a police officer.

A number of team members cracked the 100km mark during the event. The youth liaison officer rode a staggering 200km for the cause.

The event finished at 12am the next night with six cyclists still burning the midnight oil.

Inspector Hinton thanked officers and community members involved with the marathon.

He gave special thanks to Sergeant Bianca Williams and Inspector Alison Brennan who put in a “sensational effort”.

The Thin Blue Line Motorcycle Club, Mission Australia, Police Bank and Goulburn North McDonald’s were proud supporters of the event.
