The Ride for Recovery is a family-fun fitness event and a fundraiser for Dawn Farm. The event will include opportunities to participate at various fitness levels, including bike rides from 10K to 100K and 5K/10K walks/runs. Registration will include breakfast snacks, the Recovery Celebration lunch and an event t-shirt (for early registrants). The event is supported by Team MANA (a cycling team of nurse anesthetists) and is endorsed by the Michigan Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports. 


Dawn Farm is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization that provides effective, compassionate and hope-filled professional care to members of our community who struggle with alcohol/other drug problems.
