The Ride for Recovery is a family fun and fitness event and a fundraiser for Dawn Farm. There will be bike rides, runs and walks with opportunities to participate at various fitness levels, including rides from 10 K to 100 K and 5 or 10 K runs/walks. Routes
are along scenic, country roads and through a local Metro park. There will be five rest stops positioned along the routes, with restroom facilities, drinks, snacks and first aid. Children can enjoy activities in the Dawn Farm Community Barn from 9:30 am to
11:30 am, and all can enjoy a tour of the 63 acre working farm and visit the farm animals. There will be light breakfast snacks from 7:00 to 9:30, and a "Recovery Celebration" lunch with hot food from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm. The event is supported by Team MANA,
a cycling team of nurse anesthetists in Michigan. This event has been endorsed by the Michigan Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports! In addition to a fun fitness event, the Ride provides an opportunity to support a critical community service.
Dawn Farm provides effective, compassionate and hope-filled professional care to members of our community who struggle with alcohol/other drug problems.
