Just wanted to let you all know that the hospital I work for is hosting a little ride to raise money for the patients who often show up needing things that don't exactly get budgeted. For example, I work on the child/adolescent unit and we often have to pony up for clothes/underwear/toiletries for the kiddos who wind up on the unit and don't have folks who are able to bring things. Sometimes, we use the funds for some classroom items, too.
We did this ride last year and it was a good time. I'm not normally a fan of big group rides, but this one was awesome. Good twisty roads and nice people. If you don't want to ride with the group, but want to drop by for a burger or cupcake...to buy a t-shirt or simply cough up a donation, we'd be appreciative.
August 13th (Saturday)
Ride starts and finishes at Smith Bros H-D
Kickstands up at 11am
$20 donation per bike
All proceeds to directly benefit patients at Woodridge Psychiatric Hospital
