    The widow of fallen Yarmouth Police Sergeant Sean Gannon will be riding 300 miles over four days to raise awareness of those law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty.

    Dara Gannon will bike in May as part of the annual "Police Unity Tour" along with a group from the Yarmouth Police Department.

    On April 12, Sgt. Gannon was shot and killed while serving a warrant at a home in Barnstable. His K9 partner, Nero, was also shot but has made an amazing recovery since then.

    In a Facebook post through Sgt. Gannon's mother Denise, Dara wrote:

    "The generosity that I have witnessed throughout these months since April 12, 2018 continues to amaze me. We have seen firsthand the power of a community that comes together. Thank you all for your continued love and support."

    She also mentions how fitness and physical activity were one of her husband's biggest passions and how now that is motivating her to take on this event.

    Gannon has raised more than $4,000 so far for her team.
