Why We Do What We Do
Support Parker County Heroes
Proceeds from the bike ride are dispersed to the following organizations:
- Aledo Volunteer Fire Department
- Hudson Oaks Fire Rescue
- Willow Park Fire/Rescue
- Parker County Sheriff’s Reserve
- Weatherford Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association
- Parker County Center of Hope
Note: Although two fire departments now receive taxpayer funds through ESD’s and one fire department has become a municipal fire department, all three still rely on unpaid volunteer firefighters to augment their full time fire fighters. Funds dispersed by the Ride for Heroes are directed to be used to help train and equip the volunteer fire fighters.
In addition, the Ride for Heroes bike ride supports various student clubs from Aledo schools and Bike Texas (working for safer cycling in Texas).
Ride for Heroes, Inc has disbursed over $497,000
to our beneficiaries since the first ride in 2003!
Ride for Heroes 2015 Wrap Up
A huge thank you to all who supported or participated in this year’s Moritz Ride for Heroes! Mother Nature partially cooperated and provided a sunny day with mild temps (but also with some wind) for a great event. We hope the over 1150 cyclists enjoyed the routes, rest stops, scenery, and the post-ride lunch! We would love to hear your comments, good or bad. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you thought!!
