In 2010, Aaron Shafer planned Sparta’s first annual bike race while serving on the Sparta-White County Chamber of Commerce. Although Shafer passed away before the race took place, the race went on. Now in its 6th year, participation has more than doubled since the first race, in which 134 racers participated, and proceeds from the race have been donated to multiple local organizations in his honor. For more information on this year’s race and the many organizations the foundation has supported with donations, see Monday’s edition of The Expositor.
