MARKLE, Ind. (WANE) — Ride 2 Provide raised money to help a little boy whose family died in a house fire.
The all-day fundraiser supported Owen DeFord, 6, whose mom and two younger sisters died in a house fire in Fort Wayne in September 2020.
Owen was not able to make it, but part of a motorcycle ride went past his house so that he could see. Ride 2 Provide picks a new family to support for the event every year.
“It’s just a small community that we come together and just support we usually pick a family that is a need,” said Kara Zeese. “It’s just amazing to see how our community comes together to be able to raise a bunch of money to be able to help somebody out.”
