Over the past 12 years, participants have raised $ 82,596 for Hospice of the Red River Valley through the Hospice Ride, which covers a different area each year. The money raised helps provide medical, emotional, spiritual and grief support for patients and their families.

"We started the event as a way to remember Naytahwaush Nightriders members who have passed away, while also supporting a local organization," said Tom McArthur, the event's organizer.

"We hope riders from across the region will come out to participate in this fun and meaningful event again this year."
