Through the efforts of the hospice ride committee, our mission is to provide a memorable, fun and safe ride whose attendees will come back year
after year to enjoy the day with people who have been “touched by hospice” in their own way. The ride for hospice is intended to build awareness
and dollars for Faribault Area Hospice to support hospice patients and their families.
