12th Annual Angel Ride for Hospice Raises over $7,200
The 12th Annual Angel Ride for Hospice event was a huge success! Over 95 motorcycle enthusiasts joined us for a 140 mile motorcycle ride across Snohomish and Skagit Counties to show their support of Providence Hospice & Home Care. The ride raised over $7,200 for the Carousel Pediatric Program which provides hospice, palliative care, home care and bereavement programs for children birth to 18 years of age.
Dorothy Merritt, Sugery Scheduler for the Cardiology Department, heard about Angel Ride through a Providence internal newletter The Latest, and thought it was something worth trying. "I think all-in-all it was a great ride! It's for a great cause and the ride was enjoyable," Dorothy said.
Riders met for a hearty breakfast at the Buzz Inn in Arlington before heading out on their ride. They stopped for a BBQ lunch at the Rockport Pub on their way to their final destination at Angel of the Winds Casino. Where they were greeted with door prizes and one lucky rider won a pair of Seahawks tickets! "The whole ride from start to finish was incredibly organized," said Dorothy. "This was the first year we participated, and it will be an every year ride from here on out."
A huge thank you to Patrick Cline - Angel Ride Chair, Eireannach Rothai - our fabulous Road Guards, the variety of other folks who volunteered their time and to the many businesses that supported this year's Angel Ride.
