WHAT IS THE LAST MILE RIDE?

Started in 2006 with just 74 motorcyclists, the Last Mile Ride has grown into two days of fundraising activities that include a timed 5K, two different walking routes, and a motorcycle ride. Last Mile Ride funds bring patients alternative therapies like Reiki, massage, and music therapy to help with pain management. They also provide unique services to support family members: providing meals for those spending last moments with loved ones in the hospital’s two Garden Room suites, helping with transportation costs for far-away family, or arranging for photographs or a patient’s special last wish.
