HOSPICE OF KNOX COUNTY
Celebrating 25 years of service in Knox County
From the start of our event in 1999 with 40 bikes, raising about $1,300 to 2013 with 677 riders raising $32,900, our goal has been to have fun riding with friends and raise money for Hospice of Knox County Ohio. In a small way, insuring that when family's need the services Hospice provides, they will be there. This website is just another way to inform people of what we do, allowing everyone that wishes to participate whether you ride a motorcycle or not. Everyone is invited to take part in our event held the 3rd Saturday of August every year at our home. The event starts with a 100 mi ride followed by food, bike games and an auction. We also have a live band and plenty of room to camp. We would like to invite you to come out, have fun and help insure Hospice will continue to serve those in need. NO PETS please.

Thank you for helping us raise a record $32,900 with 677 riders this year! Wow! To celebrate our 15th Anniversary this year we had an amazing turnout! The weather was great and "Yet to Fall" rocked the event! The Dyno was back this year sponsored by Cook's Custom's and the shoot out on Saturday attracted a lot of people! For a give back promotion this year, the first 450 couples or single riders received a free 15th Anniversary Farmstead DVD and we hope you enjoy it! All photo pages have been updated with photos from this years event. Thanks again to everyone who participated this year and a special thanks for everyone's help picking up after themselves and leaving the place looking great! We couldn't have done it without you! For those of you who missed it, watch a recording of a brave Susan Ballard give an emotional and thought-provoking speech at this years event. Susan delivers a testimonial to the phenomenal care she has witnessed first hand from the team at Hospice of Knox County. There is no denying, this is one special lady...

Planning for Farmstead 2014 is already taking place with plans to give away a brand new black 2014 Sportster 48! Dave and LouAnn Bouchard purchased the bike and have donated it to next years event! It will be displayed at various locations over the next several months where you may purchase tickets. You may also purchase tickets from Dave, LouAnn, Dick and Evowne any time.
