Local News

PEORIA, Ill.– For the fourth year, veterans and supporters cruised through the Tri-County to raise funds for veterans.

The funds raised from Saturday’s ride will help organizations provide resources to veterans, including service dogs for veterans dealing with post traumatic stress disorder.

“The vets have shared experiences, they want to give back and they love to ride. And so they come out to raise awareness and some funds to help support organizations, so it’s a win-win.” And with today’s weather, it’s probably perfect for a ride,” Tri-County Salvation Army Development Director Rich Draeger said.
