Ride For Rickey

When friends and fellow officers heard about lieutenant turner's crash, they felt completely helpless.

Elaine ((they said, 'look, rickey had a wreck last night, and i walked around and saw the vehicle.))[03] [runs=10] [22:56]((i said, "i want to do some kind of a fundraiser. We need to do something for the family. " teresa said that jason wanted to do a bike ride.))[06] in just more than a week, a benefit was organized including a silent auction, a hamburger cookoff and a rally that would attract bikers from all over east texas. The events raised more than 20- thousand dollars for rickey and his family. [runs=8] [25:47](( with teresa not able to work now, we're just hoping that they can concentrate on, ricky's recovery and not have to worry about everything else.))[55] organizers say rickey loves the open road, and they wanted to be sure a part of him was along for the 70- mile journey. A uniformed bear, complete with h-p-d pins and a "guardian bike club patch" rode along with the police chief as he lead the pack. From his hospital bed, rickey told me all of the gestures are overwhelming. [runs=9] [38:29](( there's really no words. It's just way that group of people are. Those are my friends and that's my family.))[38] friends say rickey has a long road ahead of him and they want to organize a few more fundraisers. Right now, they're cooking up plans for a november fish fry. They say it's the least they can do for their friend who's given so much to his community.
