TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Indiana police officers on a 13-day bike ride across the state of Indiana.

And Sunday, they made a stop in Terre Haute.

Cops Cycling for Survivors serves to bring awareness to officers that have lost their lives in the line of duty.

It also helps raise funds for surviving family members.

It’s the 12th year for the event.

Organizers say the support from communities and each other has been great.

“Well, I mean we almost become a little family. We’re riding around the state and we’re having a great time. But each one of us remembers what this ride is all about. It’s not about the cyclists that are pedaling their bikes around the state, it’s about the survivors that we’re meeting along the way and also remembering those fallen officers,” said Rich Crawford, master trooper for Indiana State Police.

At the end of the ride, the cyclists will have completed a little more than 1,000 miles around the state.
