HODC RIDE FOR ANGELS FUNDRAISING EVENT READY TO ROLL FOR YEAR 17

Hospice of Davidson County will hold its 17th Annual Ride for Angels fundraising event on Saturday, July 20th.
Hospice of Davidson County (HODC) will host its 17th Annual Ride for Angels motorcycle
fundraising event at Denton FarmPark on Saturday, July 20th with registration check-in beginning
at 8:30 a.m. Early rider and passenger registration is now available at a discounted rate through
June 20th. Regular rider and passenger registration will continue until the event begins at 10:30
a.m. Pre-registration is not required but strongly encouraged; all registration information can be
located HERE.
“We are excited to continue our honored traditions of the annual Ride For Angels t-shirts, pins
and rockers bars,” explained Christina Davenport, Director of Community Relations. “We are also
introducing new opportunities this year and looking forward to our community joining with us
for this much-loved event!”
Registration will close and the event will begin at 10:30 a.m. with brief program remarks including
rider safety reminders and sponsorship acknowledgements. The ride, a 75-mile route planned
and escorted by the Davidson County Sheriff’s Department, will begin at 11:00 a.m. The day will
also include raffle opportunities and boxed lunches provided by Shanna’s Catering and
Confections for all riders and passengers.
“The annual ride is a community tradition that brings together individuals from across county
lines. It is inspiring to hear bike enthusiasts and attendees share stories of their loved ones who
continue to hold significant meaning in their lives,” shared Chief Executive Officer, Laura Owen.
“Many riders have formed friendships over the years giving the fundraiser an authentic
‘homecoming’ atmosphere that allows for a time of reconnection and honoring the legacies of
those who have passed, but are not forgotten.”
A meaningful way to honor and remember loved ones during this event is to purchase a t-shirt
sponsorship. The t-shirt sponsorship allows for the name of a loved one to be printed and
displayed on the back of the annual t-shirt. All sponsorships must be purchased by June 28th to
ensure inclusion on the t-shirt.
Fundraising efforts like the annual motorcycle ride ensure that no one is denied supportive
services when needed most. So far in 2024, HODC has provided more than 425 Charitable Care
days for community members. HODC’s mission is to ensure the exceptional hospice benefit is
accessible to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. Charitable Care days would not be possible
without our event sponsors, riders, passengers, and community partners. A special thank you to
our PRESENTING SPONSOR: Michelle Epley of Southern Key Realty and BRONZE SPONSORS: First
Bank and Steve Jackson of Edward Jones. An additional thank you to our t-shirt sponsors and
community donors.
All registration and sponsorship information available HERE.

The HODC website and social media platforms will share updated information regarding
additional opportunities to gather, register, and purchase t-shirts prior to the event. Let’s Ride!!
