Homeless Heroes holds sixth annual bike run across Texas Panhandle

Homeless Heroes held its Sixth Annual Bike Run Saturday in East Amarillo to raise money for its planned tiny home community for homeless veterans.

The Bike Run had riders going to five locations across the Texas Panhandle, collecting a playing card at each spot. A poker hand was formed with the collection of cards, with the best hand winning the contest. The locations for the event were Shark Beach and Smokey Joes in Amarillo, BOOM Town Cycles and Antelope Creek Leather in Borger and Sad Monkey Mercantile near Palo Duro Canyon. A cornhole tournament was also held.

Following the ride, all participants gathered in Amarillo for food, fun and good barbecue with a concert by the Teague Brothers Band.

Tiffaney Belflower, president and founder of Homeless Heroes, spoke about the event and her group’s continued mission to home veterans.

“All of our riders had a blast making their hands; it is crazy that this is the sixth year that we have done it while getting bigger and bigger each year,” Belflower said. “This is the best turnout we have had so far. I am so grateful for all of the people that worked to make this a magnificent event and all the people that participated.”
