Blossomwood Witches Ride
Benefiting Blount Hospitality House
Why Do We Ride?
Each year Blount Hospitality House houses many families who have traveled to Huntsville because their loved one is undergoing cancer treatment or maybe they have an infant in the Neo Natal Unit or a father who just suffered a heart attack, a mother who had a stroke or a child who is clinging to life after a car accident with his/her friends. Whatever the reason for their medical stay, Blount Hospitality House has provided a home-like environment since 1980 to these sweet families in their time of need.
Our ride is credited to Janie Mayer, of Homewood, Alabama who graciously allowed us to bring her amazing idea to Huntsville to help raise funds for families who need a place to stay while their loved one is receiving medical care in Huntsville. Janie started the Homewood Withes Ride 3 years ago, to celebrate the beautiful spirits who have lost their lives to cancer. She was inspired by her mother, Paula Stringfellow Ford, who tragically lost her life to cancer. The funds she raises goes to the American Cancer Society and its efforts to find a cure for lung cancer .
The Blossomwood Witches Ride allows for all of your registration fees, silent auction donations, merchandise and sponsorships to go directly to Blount Hospitality House, in support of families needing a home-away from home during their, often unexpected vacation in Huntsville.
The Blossomwood Witches Ride is a great opportunity to grab your girlfriends and have fun for a great cause! Dads and kids are encouraged to post up along the route to cheer on the ladies & catch candy.
