MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Police officers from across the state will continue their trek north Monday for a cause.

This year marks the 16th annual Tour de Force in which the officers will pedal more than 300 miles up Florida’s eastern seaboard in memory of fallen officers.

“The money raised is for the families of Florida officers killed in the line of duty each year,” said North Miami Beach Police Detective Craig Catlin.

This year the officers are riding for the families of law enforcement officers who died in Broward, Brevard and Clay counties, the Town of Jupiter and the Florida Department of Corrections.

The ride started Sunday in Sunny Isle Beach and will wrap up when the riders reach Daytona Beach.
