In addition to a fun fitness event that the entire family can enjoy, the Ride for Recovery provides an opportunity to support a critical community service. Founded in 1973, Dawn Farm provides effective, compassionate and hope-filled professional care to members of our community who struggle with alcohol/other drug problems. Dawn Farm’s continuum of services includes residential treatment, detoxification services, outpatient treatment, transitional housing, and community outreach programs that meet people with addictions where they are, whether in the mainstream of society, on the streets or in jail. Dawn Farm is committed to helping people find recovery, regardless of their ability to pay. Community support for events like the Ride for Recovery helps to keep these vital services available for those who need them most!
