Carolina Brotherhood, Inc. was established in 2012 and continues to support families of first responders who tragically made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Dozens of law enforcement officers, firefighters, and emergency personnel from both North and South Carolina are participating in the over 600 mile bicycle ride in order to raise funds for families of fallen first responders. Sheriff Leon Lott stated that this year, Richland County Sheriff’s Department K9 Specialist Corporal James Abraham will be making the ride in honour of fallen Forest Acres Officer Greg Alia, killed in the line of duty on September 30, 2015 leaving behind a loving wife and son.
