THE STORY:

I want to tell you about a program and a person very close to my heart.  The program is Hospice at Home and the person is my friend Dawn Spoon.

I first became aware of Hospice at Home when my father was in need of hospice care. Dad was 99, blind and going deaf. I didn't know what to pray for anymore. The idea of this brilliant man having no means of communicating with the outside world was more than I could bear. Who else could understand.

Hospice at Home came into our home and cared for my father and gave me support and respite until the morning he died. It was obvious it was much more than a job to these folk.

Dawn Spoon is a friend I first met at my church. There was always this something special about her. When I discovered she worked with Hospice at Home I was not surprised.

In 2014 Dawn called me excited about a new project. An avid biker she had this little idea. What if she could combine her two passions? What if she could raise money for those who could not otherwise afford hospice care, especially at the new Hanson Center in Stevensville, MI?

In two years of the 465 mile ride from the top of the "Mitt" to Hanson Center in Stevensville, she has already raised over $20,000. And she is far from finished.

In this the third year of the Tour de Mitt ride, Dawn invites you to join her. Create your own team and see how much you can raise. Like biking and fresh air yourself? Why not ride along?
