CORNWALL, Ontario – The fourth annual Motorcycle Ride for Hospice returns on Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021.
Leaving from the St. Lawrence Blvd. pub at 1207 Second St. W., this year’s ride will be making stops at the Legion in Prescott, and at the Sol De Acapulco Resturante in Ingleside before returning the the St. Lawrence Blvd. pub for an auction and prize giveaway.
Mike Dagenais, an organizer of the Motorcycle Ride for Hospice said that the St. Lawrence Blvd. pub has been a great supporter of the fundraiser over the years/
“Kim Hurtubise has been collecting money for us year round,” Dagenais said.
Additionally, Dagenais said that the wives of some of the riders have really gotten into helping fundraise for the cause.
“This year we are lucky to have some wives and friends who have gone above and beyond in fundraising and have already collected $12,000 for us,” he said.
The Motorcycle Ride for Hospice is one of Carefor Hospice Cornwall’s biggest fundraisers of the year, raising more money last year than any other fundraiser for the organization.
In total, over the past three years, the Motorcycle Ride for Hospice has collected over $52,000 for Hospice.
