PORTLAND -- BMX bikers filled an indoor bike park in Northeast Portland Monday for a fundraiser for the families of fallen police officers.

Lumberyard Bike Park on Northeast 82nd Avenue gave 50 percent of its proceeds on Monday to the Fallen Badge Foundation which supports officers killed in the line of duty, including Oregon City reserve officer Robert Libke.

Libke, a volunteer, was slain in the line of duty on Nov. 5.

Crystal Mai Purdy worked with Libke's family on his memorial service and felt she wanted to do more to help.

So I just thought ...have people in the community come here, have the officers come here and support a great cause, Purdy said.

The lumberyard also offered a 50 percent discount to officers and their families.
