On behalf of the patients, families, staff and volunteers of United Hospice Service, I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to Melvin Hogtown, Inc. for their 5th Annual Hogtown Run held on August 8 to support our hospice program. Not even the buckets of rain could dampen the spirits of 63 bikers who came out to ride. With 225 registered participants, over $13,000 was raised for United Hospice Service.
Words cannot express our gratitude toward Melvin Hogtown Inc. for their generosity, hard work and dedication to United Hospice Service. In these difficult economic times, it is even more touching to have the support from this great group of people. Every dollar raised from the run goes directly to care for patients and their families. Examples include room and board at the Hospice Residence, heat bills, groceries or transportation.
Thank you again, Melvin Hogtown, Inc.!
With a grateful heart,
Cristen Dean-Hopkins, Hospice Director, United Hospice Service, Marlette Regional Hospital, Marlette
