For a decade, motorcycle riders have been participating in Hittin’ the Road for Hospice, in support of Gulfside patients in need and their families.
During the 10th annual event, records were set when just over $30,000 was raised for the nonprofit, according to a news release.
More than 150 riders started the run at Harley-Davidson New Port Richey and ended with a celebration at Zephyrhills Moose Lodge 2276, with multiple stops along the way.
“We knew the 10th anniversary of this event was going to be a big one, and the community really pulled through this year,” said Leesa Fryer, fundraising and event planning manager for Gulfside, in the release.
The event was a group effort made possible by the sponsors, the poker stop hosts, the motorcycle clubs that fundraised, volunteers, and all the bikers that rode, Fryer said in the release.
All event proceeds will benefit Gulfside Hospice and help to provide hospice care and resources for patients and families in Pasco County, regardless of their ability to pay.
