Cops cycling to remember fallen comrades stop in Mishawaka

Posted:

The Cops Cycling For Survivors Foundation is riding to remember their fallen brethren. For the past eleven years, active and retired police officers, along with survivors of fallen law enforcement, have biked across and around Indiana.

The group is trying to raise awareness about the sacrifices made by Hoosier law enforcement, while also raising money for the surviving family members and co workers of the fallen officers.

Thursday was the fourth day of the 2013 ride, with bikers making a stop in Mishawaka. The president of the foundation has a simple request of the public when they see officers riding.

"Pause and just think a minute about those officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty in their respective communities and just think about what their families are going through without their officers in their lives anymore," said foundation President Rich Crawford.

Sgt. Niki Crawford, Treasurer of the Cops Cycling For Survivors Foundation said, "When you have a goal and you've got survivors to meet and officers to see along the way, it makes it all worth it."

The ride will wrap up next weekend at the Crown Hill cemetery in Indianapolis. For more information on the ride and how you can get involved, click here.
