A memorial ride will be held later this month in honor of a state trooper killed in the line of duty a year ago next Monday.

Supporting Our Heroes of Central PA is hosting the ride in honor of Trooper Jacques F. Rougeau on June 23.

Rougeau was killed in the line of duty on June 17, 2023, in Walker Township, Juniata County.

That is where the ride will begin, organizers said, near Harshbargers. It will end at the Port Royal Lions Club in Port Royal, about 50 miles.

Any vehicle, be it a bike, car, or fire truck, can participate at a cost of $20 per vehicle.

A basket raffle will be held at the Lions Club, and T-shirts will also be sold.

All proceeds go to the Mifflin/Juniata Scholarship Fund, in honor of Trooper Rougeau.Line
