The 12th annual Cops Cycling for Survivors riders were in Decatur Wednesday during day three of a 19-day trek covering nearly 1,000 miles throughout Indiana. The event kicked off in downtown Indianapolis Monday as 66 cyclists participating in this year’s ride began their journey in honor of fallen Indiana law enforcement officers.
Cops Cycling for Survivors Foundation is a group of active and retired police officers, law enforcement survivors and friends of law enforcement who bicycle across Indiana to raise awareness and funds for officers killed in the line of duty.
Funds raised from the event are used to help support surviving family members and co-workers of officers who were killed, with a portion of the funds raised directly supporting the Indiana chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors.
