On September 26,2020 the Rockwall and Rowlett communities officially dedicated the State Highway 66 bridge as the “Heroes Memorial Bridge.”
Founded by Third Watch LE Motorcycle Club, #WalkTheBridge is a commitment to walking a symbolic 22 Miles once each month. The purpose of #WalkTheBridge is to draw attention to the approximately 22 Veterans and First Responders who take their own lives each and every day.
"Post-Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI) has been a silent killer among the law enforcement community for many years. PTSI affects many current and retired officers who quietly battle the daily traumas they have witnessed during their careers. Many hide this injury well, with fake smiles and dark humor, but the fact remains they are hurting inside."
