NC officers make 250-mile memorial bike ride


DURHAM, N.C. -- Three North Carolina police officers will carry the memory of a co-worker as they make a 250-mile bicycle trip to Washington, D.C.

The Herald-Sun of Durham reports that the Duke University officers will start the Law Enforcement United Memorial Bicycle Ride on Monday and expect to arrive for a ceremony at the Pentagon on Wednesday afternoon.

Mark Faust, David Johnson and Rekayi Isley say they are riding in memory of former Duke and Durham city officer Charles Callemyn. Callemyn died in a 2007 traffic accident while rushing to provide backup to a fellow officer.

After Callemyn died, Faust and other Duke officers rebuilt the boyhood tree house Callemyn had loved as a child at his Hillsborough home, so his two sons can enjoy it.
