BENSALEM, PA – On Sunday, May 31, hundreds of Bucks County community members will gather at the Livengrin Foundation for the 11th Annual Ride for Recovery. The yearly motorcycle poker run winds through the scenic towns of Bucks County and raises funds and awareness for addiction recovery at the Livengrin Foundation. Livengrin is a Bucks County-based, non-profit addiction treatment center that has helped over 125,000 patients and families since 1966.
The Ride for Recovery includes a 60 mile motorcycle ride, live entertainment, outdoor picnic and raffle drawing for a Softail Slim Harley Davidson. A new addition this year is a Bicycle Ride for Recovery. Experienced road cyclists can join in celebrating recovery while pedaling 40 miles through scenic Bucks County. The community event will bring together family, friends, and past and present Livengrin patients for a day of fun and fundraising. The ride is a poker run, so participants will get stamps at the stops along their course and then select their cards when they return to Livengrin. The person with the highest poker hand wins a cash prize. Besides raising funds, the event helps raise awareness for sobriety – sending a message of hope that addiction recovery is possible.
The 2014 event welcomed more than 1,200 participants and raised more than $90,000 for Livengrin’s patient programs including scholarship funds for patients who cannot afford treatment or don’t have medical insurance to cover it.
Riders can pre-register online at https://www.livengrin.org/ride/ for $25. Day-of registration will begin at 8 a.m. on May 31, 2015 for $30. Registration for passengers or community members who just want to attend the picnic portion of the event is $10. Learn more about Livengrin and the Ride for Recovery at www.livengrin.org.
