On Saturday, July 29th Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care hosted their 2nd Annual Ride For Hospice. Registration began at 8:00 am at Pueblo Community College, with the ride starting at 10:00 am along Hwy 96, going to Bishop’s Castle and ending at Obie’s Fillin’ Station in Rye, Colo.

“It was in the spring of 2016, we were visiting in medical records and we came up with the idea,” said Sharon Honeycutt, Medical Records Director, “A lot of organizations do golf tournaments, some do poker runs and we’ve done a fishing derby; we thought the idea of a ride was a little different.”

Approximately 150 riders came to show their support for hospice, including the Expendables, Street Soldiers, Sober Indian Riders, Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association, Steel City, VFW Warriors and Christian Motorcyclists Association, all motorcycle clubs. “The support for hospice itself, the groups that came wearing the ‘in memory shirts,’ the clubs and the overall outcome and support from the community was unbelievable,” said Honeycutt. She said Sangre de Cristo Hospice is a caring organization who has team members willing to go above and beyond for patients and family members at any given time, day or the middle of the night, which might account for the willingness on behalf of the community; still she said, it touched her and the others who dreamed this up one day while sitting in their medical records office.
