From all of us here at the Police Officer Assistance Trust (POAT), and all of the children who continue to receive gifts every holiday because of your generosity and assistance, we want to thank you for your continued support of our Cops Ride for Kids.
Our May 2017 ride was a success, with over 600 motorcycles participating in the ride to Islamorada. Unfortunately, we also had a horrific event occur before our ride. Some of you may not be aware but, Major Ricky Carter was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident on I-75. Major Carter was traveling to the POAT Motorcycle Ride benefitting the surviving children of fallen officers; the same organization that now stands to provide assistance to Ricky and his family.
At this time, the POAT is accepting tax deductible donations for Major Carter. Please ensure Ricky Carter’s name is placed in the comment section, as the proceeds will be directed to the Carter Family. The hyperlink is listed below:
Major Carter is still in a critical state as a result of the massive injuries he sustained. Please continue to keep Major Carter in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
