— The Ride for Heroes Board recently distributed $41,605 in proceeds from this year’s Ride for Heroes to three East Parker County Fire Departments, as well as to the Parker County Sheriff’s Reserve, Weatherford Citizens Police Academy, Parker County Center of Hope and Aledo school clubs who assisted with the April 20 bicycle ride in Aledo.  

The money, presented during a “Giving Ceremony” at Los Vaqueros West, brings the total contributed since the ride began in 2003 to $397,815. Next year’s ride has been set for April 19, 2014.

Board members, the event’s primary volunteers, include board president Dennis Thompson, Jo-Alice Davis, Larry Smith, Steve Malley, Paula Johns, Justin Lisle, Rick Campbell and Molly Carter.
