ALBANY, N.Y. -- Friday marks the start of the 10th annual Blue Friday fundraising event.

The fundraiser benefits families of fallen police officers through Blue Friday of New York. Blue carnations, apparel, and limited edition Blue Friday challenge coins are all available for purchase.

Blue Friday started 10 years ago after the deaths of Albany Police Lieutenant John Finn and Schenectady Police Officer Eric Verteramo. In conjunction with the fundraiser, the third annual Blue Friday Fallen Officers Memorial Ride is scheduled for Sunday.

For more information about participating in the ride, or how to donate to the cause, visit www.bluefridayny.org.
