VI Gives Back
The Ride4Cops Program roared into Richmond on May 6, 2011 to raise awareness of the inherent dangers of law enforcement and the sacrifices made by the families of fallen officers. The ride culminated with a ceremony on the lawn of the Virginia Capitol to honor police officers who have lost their lives serving the people of Virginia. Ride4Cops founder Harry Herington and other VIPs honored police officers who have lost their lives serving the people of Virginia. Herington also presented donations to Virginia Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) Chapter. Click on the images below to view photos from the Virginia Ride4Cops event.

Virginia Blood Services
A blood donor at Virginia Blood Services (VBS) is a special kind of volunteer. By committing about an hour of your time, you can donate a gift more precious than time or money: the gift of life through blood. One donation of blood can help save up to three patients' lives. VBS provides blood services to hospitals and dialysis centers throughout central Virginia and beyond. We are fortunate to live in a region where sophisticated medical facilities and transplant programs are available; however, these programs require many blood donations.
