The Ride 2017 marked the thirteenth year of our fast-paced, exhilarating indoor bicycle race. At this year’s event, 53 teams participated with 424 riders, and 50 colleagues and community members volunteered.
Combined, participants peddled 5,040 miles and raised $23,000 to benefit the Heart Center’s patients, the high school student heart screening program, and cardiovascular services for the new medical center. Since 2005, this event has raised over $500,000 to benefit heart and vascular services for our patients, our community and our colleagues.
Special thanks go to our logistics team – Tom Anderson, Rick Hyatt, Eric Moe and Blair Moreau, and especially Plant Operations Jim Goodburn, Jerry Booth, and Dave VanHall.
