Port St. Lucie-April 5, 2022: The 25th Annual Florida Tour de Force made it's way through Vero Beach Wednesday, after passing through Indian River County the day before. The riders made a quick stop at the local WaWa, and then headed north again on U.S. 1 on their way to Daytona.

It's organized and manned by volunteers of the law enforcement community and all monies raised are donated to the families of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty in the state of Florida.
