BAYONNE, N.J., February 20, 2019 – On Tuesday, Dr. Vijayant Singh, Chief Executive Officer from CarePoint Health-Bayonne Medical Center presented the Bayonne Police Department with a $2,000 check to support their team’s participation in the Police Unity Tour. Mayor James M. Davis and Deputy Police Chief Robert Schork spoke to Bayonne Medical Center’s Hospital leadership to show gratitude for the established community partnership.
The Police Unity Tour is a national event held annually in which over 2,500 police officers cycle from New Jersey to the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, D.C. to raise public awareness of police officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. It is a four-day, 300-mile bike ride that begins each year on May 9th.
“The Police Unity Tour is something which deserves the support of CarePoint Health and Bayonne Medical Center as a part of this community. We feel that any initiative that serves the officers as well as the community needs to be supported,” said Dr. Singh “It is a small token of our commitment to our relationship with the Bayonne Police Department, which we truly relish and feel extremely proud of.”
“I would like to say thank you to CarePoint Health, this is just another chapter in your continued journey to be a part and always remain a part of the community we call Bayonne. To our police officers, I just want to say God bless you,” said Mayor Davis. “This is something that the community doesn’t realize that CarePoint Health does. CarePoint Health donating and helping the officers to be able to do this really makes a resounding effort towards the City of Bayonne.”
The organization, which was founded in 1997 in Florham Park, N.J., has raised over $23 million since its inception, assisting in the construction of the National Law Enforcement Museum and restoration to the walls of the National Law Enforcement Memorial.
CarePoint Health has been a sponsor of the Police Unity Tour for the past 2 years, and looks forward to the continued partnership with, and support of the Bayonne Police Department.
