Forest Riders Snowmobile Club Donates to CHI St. Joseph's Hospice Care

April 18, 2018
Forest Riders Snowmobile Club held their 4th Annual Ride for Hospice on behalf of CHI St. Joseph’s Health Hospice Care.
The club coordinates this event to raise funds for Hospice in honor or in memory of loved ones. The club raised $3,500.00 to benefit CHI St. Joseph’s Health Hospice Care. 
These donations make a difference to patients, families and loved ones facing end-of-life issues. Community support ensures specialized quality hospice care close to home with an emphasis on comfort, dignity and helping hospice patients live every day to its fullest.
On January 27 and 28, riders left the Two Inlets Country Store Saturday at noon on their snowmobiles riding the groomed trails to Chase on the Lake in Walker.
The club would like to thank everyone who rode either by snowmobile or drove support vehicles, and most importantly, the parties who donated to this great cause! Forest Riders Snowmobile Club is proud to support CHI St. Joseph Health Hospice Care and all they do for our community. We are looking forward to the 5th Annual Ride for Hospice in 2019!
