Annual event raising funds and awareness for the Harbor Hospice Foundation and supporting The Leila & Cyrus Poppen Hospice Residence program was held on Saturday, May 25, 2019.

Since 2006, the philanthropic day has brought in almost $15,000 (since May 25) with all proceeds benefiting our inpatient hospice program, The Leila & Cyrus Poppen Hospice Residence, which opened in 2005.  Almost 3,000 patients and families have called this their home.

Held in Fruitport and in conjunction with the Fruitport Old-Fashioned Days Festival – the community has joined us for the past 13 years to ride around beautiful spring lake in memory of loved ones who have died.

The morning began with rider check-in and late registration, informal welcoming and surprise prize giveaways.  The ride kicked-off at 11:00 am with all riders are encouraged to take their time.  This is not a timed race, only leisurely fun in support of our hospice residence wiht a complimentary lunch at the festival at conclusion of ride.

A quote from our sponsor

“My family and I know how important hospice care is because we experienced it with my mom,” says Jim Kauppila, member of the Fruitport Lions Club and chair of the Ride to Remember. “Many of our riders come back year after year, and we’re all grateful to be able to support the Poppen Hospice Residence with this fun event.”
