Monday, July 14, will mark the start of the 12th annual Cops Cycling for Survivors group bicycle ride around Indiana.
This year there are 66 cyclists participating in the ride.
Their Indianapolis departure will take them east toward Greenfield, on the first leg of journey that will last 13 days and cover nearly 1,000 miles bicycling the perimeter of Indiana.
Cops Cycling for Survivors Foundation, Inc., are made up of active and retired police officers, law enforcement survivors, law enforcement family members and friends of law enforcement riding their bicycles around the perimeter of Indiana to raise money and awareness about the sacrifices made by Hoosier law enforcement families across Indiana.
Funds raised from this event are used to aid surviving family members and co-workers of officers killed in the line-of-duty.
Previously raised funds have been directly donated to 20 different survivor support organizations, scholarships and camps held in memory of Indiana Law Enforcement Officers who have been killed in the line of duty (see link: http://www.copscycling4survivors.org/about-us.html).
The ride is scheduled to conclude on the afternoon of Saturday, July 26, 2014, at Crown Hill Cemetery, Heroes of Public Safety Section, where the riders will reunite with their families and other law enforcement survivors.
