Livengrin Foundation, 4833 Hulmeville Road in Bensalem, is hosting its annual Ride for Recovery on Sunday, June 26. Join over 200 motorcyclists as they travel through Bucks County’s covered bridges and conclude the day with music and a BBQ on the Bensalem campus.
Proceeds benefit Livengrin’s continuum of services to assist addicts and alcoholics in achieving long-term recovery. Specifically, these funds will go toward treatment scholarships for those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford care.
“This event is especially important to our patients and their families who struggle to access treatment due to loss of employment and healthcare benefits during COVID-19,” said Livengrin CEO David Blenk. “Last year’s ride raised $15,000 for Livengrin’s patient scholarship fund, which provides treatment access for individuals who are under-insured or have no insurance.”
Registration for the motorcycle run is from 7:45 to 9 a.m. Send-off ceremony is at 9 a.m. The picnic begins at noon and runs until 3 p.m. and includes food, raffles, music, activities, vendors, information tables and a recovery meeting. All are welcome. Family-friendly.
Donation for riders is $25. Picnic is $15. Children 10 and under are free. Pre-registration is suggested. Click here for registration information.
Parking at the picnic is at Bensalem High School, 4319 Hulmeville Road. There will be a shuttle service from the high school to Livengrin throughout the day.
