Naytahwaush Nightriders Hosting 17th Annual Hospice Ride
Naytahwaush, MN — The Naytahwaush Nightriders Snowmobile Club will be hosting their 17th Annual Ride for Hospice this Saturday, February 6th. Throughout the history of the ride, the Nightriders have raised just over $116,000 towards Hospice of the Red River Valley. Typically, this ride was a two-day event that included a hotel stay, but Tommy McArthur of the Naytahwaush Nightriders Snowmobile Club says they shortened it to a day trip this year as a COVID precaution.
Despite the cold, riding should be quite pleasant this weekend. McArthur notes that the trails that they will be taking are actually in very good shape compare to other parts of the region.
McArthur anticipates around 40 riders will be participating in this Saturday’s ride and it’s not too late sign up if you are interested in joining them. Visit the Naytahwaush Nightriders Facebook page for more information. The ride will begin at 9am.
Last year’s ride brought in just about $13,000 for Hospice of the Red River Valley. According to their website, for 40 years, Hospice of the Red River Valley has provided exceptional, person-centered medical care and grief support for our communities. Hospice of the Red River Valley provides intensive comfort care for those with a life-limiting, serious illness who have chosen to stop curative treatments. Hospice relieves pain and symptoms while attending to an individual’s physical, personal, emotional and spiritual needs.
