Ride The Red Raises Money For Hospice

Posted: Updated:

As we bid the last few days of summer goodbye, dozens of bicyclists took the opportunity to roll along the Red River.

80 people came out for the 13th annual "Ride The Red" bike ride and walk event. The money raised all goes towards the Red River Valley Hospice.

Hospice helps gives terminally ill patients and families care with medical, emotional and spiritual services. Those who first started the event say they can't think of a better program to be helping.

"Nobody likes to talk about death and dying, but what hospice does is helps people and families in that transition." says Ride the Red founder Pat Brown.

Organizers say participants helped to raise almost $8,000 Saturday.
