Reaching the Top of Elbert for Fallen Heroes!
Is summiting one of Colorado’s 14ers one of your summer goals? Well, consider joining Cops on Top for their Mt. Elbert ascent on June 28 to honor of the law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty. Every year on the last Saturday in June, Cops on Top teams from across the country set out to summit their state’s highest point. Last year, a team of 23 volunteers summited Mt. Elbert and they are looking for others interested in joining them this year.Team Colorado for Cops on Top summited Mt. Elbert to honor fallen heroes last June. Will you join them this year?
Cops on Top has a mission of never forgetting the life, memory and sacrifice of our nation’s law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty. Whether the team is attempting to climb the tallest mountain or hike the highest hill, each team member carries with them the memory of the tremendous sacrifice the officers made to protect and serve that State. Certainly something to remember with memorial Day just around the corner. Thank you to all law enforcement, but especially the Leadville/Lake County officers for keeping the community safe.
