Our Mission

 

The 13th Annual Blue Thunder Benefit was a huge success thanks to everyone that volunteered their time. The Ron King Organization organizes and promotes benefits to help accomplish their mission of promoting unity between the public and law enforcement personnel through fundraising to assist the youth of our community with their education goals. The Ron King Organization also endeavors to assist law enforcement families suffering from hardships including line of duty injuries and deaths.

Deputy Ron King served his community as a deputy sheriff with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, and worked in the traffic enforcement unit. In 1999, Deputy Ron King, while patrolling on his motorcycle, was struck and killed by a DUI driver. It is in his honor that the Ron King Organization was formed.

Traditionally, the Ron King Organization has supported the youth of our community by awarding college scholarships. The organization also contributes to the maintenance of the law enforcement memorial located at the entrance of the Douglas County Justice Center. The Ron King Organization is a registered charity with the Colorado Secretary of State and is also recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization.

We appreciate the help of members and volunteers of our organization. We, at the Ron King Organization, are aware that our members and volunteers are working within our community to bring in much needed funding for this worthy cause. Thank you in advance for your participation in this event.
