Rich Crawford – President
Rich Crawford has been an Indiana State Trooper since 1990 and has participated in the bike ride since 2003. His inaugural ride in 2003 was the second trip that Gary Dudley and the other cyclists made to Washington D.C. and that’s when he made the commitment to support the families of fallen law enforcement officers. Rich worked closely with Gary planning the annual bike ride until his death in 2006. He continues to honor his friend by keeping his dream alive honoring our fallen Indiana Law Enforcement officers and their survivors.
Amy Stehr - Secretary
Amy Gaston Stehr is the widow survivor of Indiana State Trooper Richard T. Gaston, EOW 3-4-99. Amy joined the Cops Cycling for Survivors board as a way to continue her support of other survivors, to honor those who have been killed in the line of duty, and to assist in continuing the legacy that was started by Gary Dudley. Amy is honored to be a part of this special group, and to help ensure that the names of the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice will not be forgotten.
Niki Crawford – Treasurer
Niki Crawford has been with the Indiana State Police since 1993. She has been a part of the ride, assisting with the planning and participating, for several years. Her passion for supporting and working with survivors began in 1998 after losing a co-worker in the line of duty. Her favorite thing about the ride is meeting the survivors along the route and the beauty of Indiana’s terrain. Niki and Rich were married in 1995. They are proud parents of Emily, Kyle, and Erik and grandparents of Isla and Asher.

He feels in his heart being part of this organization is a privilege.
Monica Zahasky – Board Member
Monica Zahasky started her career with the Bloomington Police Department in 2000. She has participated in the ride every year since 2002, the first year the group rode to Washington DC from Indianapolis. Cycling in this ride is Monica’s way of giving back to the families that have lost officers in the line of duty and honoring the sacrifice by her fellow police officers. She wants her participation to remind communities of the sacrifices made by law enforcement professionals, to show her respect for law enforcement officers, and to show love to the survivors left behind after a line of duty death. Monica lives in Bloomington.
