Dawn Farm Ride for Recovery

Dawn Farm Third Annual Ride for Recovery  (3524)

04/29/2012 8:00 AM - 04/29/2012 3:00 PM

The Ride for Recovery is a family fun and fitness event and a fundraiser. There will be bike rides, runs and walks with opportunities to participate at any fitness level. Registration includes a Ride for Recovery T-shirt and a "Fun Day at the Farm" event
for all riders/runners/walkers and their families – food, hayrides, tours of the farm, kid's activities in the Community Barn, and more! We'll have a "Recovery Celebration" (with hot food!) from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm. This event has been officially endorsed
by the Michigan Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports. In addition to a fun event that the entire family can enjoy, the Ride for Recovery provides an opportunity to support a critical community service. Since 1973 Dawn Farm has provided
effective, compassionate, hope-filled care. Dawn Farm's continuum of services includes residential treatment, detoxification, outpatient treatment, transitional housing, and community outreach programs that meet people with addictions where they are, whether
mainstream society, on the streets or in jail. Community support helps Dawn Farm to continue our committment to helping people find recovery regardless of ability to pay.
