About Ride On Cannon Foundation

Cannon Hinnant’s smile was contagious, he was a genuinely happy child that had his whole life ahead of him, but his life was tragically cut short August 9, 2020.

He was only five years old.

Cannon rode his bicycle into a neighbors yard, and that neighbor who shall remain nameless shot Cannon at point-blank range. We are committed to continuing to share Cannon’s smile.

Ride on Cannon is more than a charity. We get involved in making our world a better place one child at a time.


Give Donation

We thank everyone of our donors and sponsors without you we wouldn’t be able to change and touch the lives of these deserving children.


We have many positions in each fundraiser and event that you can get yourself involved with and we would be honored to have your help.

Meet the Founder

Teresa Welch started Ride On Cannon Foundation after hearing of the tragic shooting of Cannon Hinnant, a five year old boy who was shot riding his bicycle.


"...We couldn’t afford any Christmas gifts for our kids but I posted in groups on Facebook looking for help, and Teresa from Ride on Cannon reached out to me. I was left in tears of joy because all our kids got Christmas gifts. We are so thankful to be blessed with such a huge Christmas miracle from Ride on Cannon Foundation."
