“Waggin Trail Bike Ride” Being Planned To Help Support Two Outstanding Causes


Hill County Paw Pals along will Boys and Girls Club of Hill County, both non-profit IRC 501(c)3 organizations, have joined together for a shared fund raiser—“The Waggin Trail Bike Ride”.  This charitable event is scheduled next spring on Saturday, May 3 and will include 50 and 65 mile routes for the avid cyclists and 10 and 30 mile routes for casual fun seekers.  The planned routes will take one out to the beautiful scenic rural areas of Hill County.  The proceeds will benefit two worthy causes—building funds for a needed county animal shelter and to help with the operating expenses of our county’s newly founded Boys and Girls Club.


Hill County is blessed with its beautiful roads and scenery and remains untapped for such an event for folks to explore this treasure.  Cycling is a sport for the entire family to enjoy.  This fundraiser will become an annual happening and has the potential to draw thousands of participants.  Local organizations and businesses will have the opportunity to help sponsor this worthy event.  Volunteer citizens who are helping plan this exciting activity are: Ms. Barneda Wesley, Director of Boys and Girls Club of Hill County; Tony Cain, Chief of Police Hillsboro Police Department; Detective Jeremy Gloer, Hillsboro Police Department; Reverend Reed Justus, United Methodist Church; Robert Watts, Director Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce; Dr. Lane Dykes; and Mike Hendricks, Hill County Paw Pals representative.


Hill County Paw Pals is a grass roots group that organized with two goals: 1) Facilitate installation of a county animal control program and promote and contribute to building a county animal shelter; and 2) Organize to challenge the overpopulation of unwanted companion animals (dog and cats) with four programs working simultaneously–Education, Legislation, Spay/Neuter, and Adoption (Project ELSA).  More information about Paw Pals can be viewed at their website www.hpawpals.org or by calling 580-0679.
