INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An Indiana State Police trooper’s mission lives on 17 years after his death.

Motorcycles gathered Saturday for the annual Trooper Bartram Memorial Ride.

Pat Bartram was killed in the line o duty in 1998 in Morgan County.

Money raised during the ride will be used to take needy children Christmas shopping this December.

More than 100 kids were taken shopping last year, and organizers are hoping to double that number this year. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
