The Naytahwaush Nightriders Snowmobile Club recently announced that this year’s Hospice Ride, held in February, raised $10,584 for Hospice of the Red River Valley. Thirty-two riders participated in the event, which took them from Naytahwaush to Bemidji, Minn.
The Nightriders presented a check to Curt Seter, development officer for Hospice of the Red River Valley, at their annual Snodeo, which was held March 3-4. The group has raised $103,639 through 14 years of Hospice rides. Bill and Jen Beckman raised $3,730.25 for this year’s event through collecting a record amount of pledges. They surpassed the previous record held by Dan and Jo Pelham since 2008.
“Everyone at Hospice of the Red River Valley is so grateful to the community of Naytahwaush, the Naytahwaush Nightriders and the surrounding area for their generous and continuous financial support of our organization,” Seter said. “The funds raised by the annual Hospice Ride are an essential component in ensuring that Hospice of the Red River Valley will have the resources necessary to provide compassionate end-of-life care to our patients and their families in the Naytahwaush area.”
