Teams from across the country will set out to summit their state’s highest point in honor of the 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 will carry with them the memory of the tremendous sacrifice the officers made to protect and serve that State.
The annual Summit for Heroes memorial climb dates back to 2006 and is one of our largest memorial climbing events the organizations conducts. Last year, there were approximately 700 law enforcement professionals, friends, family and supporters that took part in the 2012 Summit for Heroes memorial climb. Each year we grow ever closer to reaching our goal of honoring every fallen officer in all 50 States.
Florida led the nation last year with 13 officers killed in the line of duty. Walton County Sheriff’s Office cordially invites you to join them in this reverent ceremony to ensure our brother and sisters are not forgotten.
