14th annual C.O.P.S. run raises money for children of fallen officers

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Biker fans and riders hit the streets Saturday to remember those who have paid the ultimate price in the line of duty.

Dozens of bikers turned out for the 14th annual C.O.P.S. run at the Harley Davidson on Arthur Street.

C.O.P.S. stands of Concerns of Police Survivors.

The event started in 2001 as a way for family members and co-workers of fallen officers to join together to remember their loved ones, and be surrounded with support.

"These riders come out for us every year. They enjoy the ride. They enjoy the meal afterward and the fellowship and they truly come out because they support us and they want to see these families rebuild their shattered lives," Kentucky C.O.P.S. President Brandy Durman said.

The money raised Saturday will be used to send children of fallen officers to camp, and to aid in any counseling the families might need.
