There are several goals we have and continue to want to achieve with our annual Memorial Ride. First and foremost we use funds raised to assist young adults in their academic endeavors into the public safety fields, whether that be pursuing police, fire, or ems. With the proceeds we have been able to provide these students with scholarships to help fund and achieve their goals, helping to continue a new generation of Hometown Heroes.
Secondly, we have used funds raised to provide donations to the families of first responders during times of hardship. This has included loss of homes and in the unfortunate event of loss of life.
Lastly, the Hometown Heroes Committee has been able to provide donations to local departments to assist in purchasing necessary equipment and personal protective equipment(PPE) to effectively perform their duties and serve their communities.
