Bike ride remembers fallen officers


Hundreds of bikes took to the streets of Michiana together Sunday.  And it was all to honor fallen police officers.  It was the 8th annual Tom and Bryan Ride.  Corporal Thomas Roberts and Patrolman Bryan Verkler were both killed in the line of duty.  Now this ride remembers them by raising money to help local children.  Event Organizer Sgt. Russ Haimbaugh said, "Tom and Bryan both like kids.  They realized kids are our future, it's not just the cliche kind of thing that's how they feel.  So we wanted to do something to remember them not so much the events that led to their death but with what they stood for. "

The ride was 70 miles.  It went from Mishawaka to the Koontz Lake area and back.
