Honoring the fallen while traveling across the state, that’s what multiple current and former police officers did Thursday. The “Cops Cycling for Survivors” group traveled through Fort Wayne. The group is made up of Law Enforcement officers from across the state and region.
After stopping at the Fort Wayne Police and Fire Memorial on Wells Street, the group read several testimonies of those who lost their lives in the line of duty. The group will stay in Bluffton tonight for Day 11 of 13 on their journey after starting the ride in Indianapolis. Riders are also honoring Lieutenant Aaron Allan from Indianapolis and Allen County Sheriff Sergeant Joseph Cox who died last year.
Money raised by the group is used to carry-on the memory of officers killed in the line-of-duty and help surviving family members and co-workers. After 13-days and about one-thousand miles, the ride will end back in Indianapolis on Saturday at Crown Hill Cemetery.
