Catawba Regional Hospice was delighted to accept a check in the amount of $4500 from the Hickory Riding Club on October 20, 2012. The money was raised from the motorcycle group’s 19th Annual Bronson Run, which commemorates a former HRC member served by Catawba Regional Hospice.
Funds for the gift are generously donated by local companies, and fees for participation in the Bronson Run also contribute to the cause. At each of the five stops along the route, riders draw playing cards. In the spirit of friendly competition, participants compile poker hands that they reveal following the completion of the run. Those with the best and worst hands win cash prizes. Live music, food, and camping are also part of the Bronson Run’s yearly festivities.
The Hickory Riding Club’s thoughtful gift to Catawba Regional Hospice grants patients and their families access to care and services not covered by other means.
