8th Annual Pine Valley Ride for Hope

Dear Riders, Sponsors and Friends,

 It was another beautiful day this past Saturday (Sept 18th) for the 8th Annual Ride for Hope benefit motorcycle ride for Pine Valley Camp!  133 riders came out to support this event, it was a sunny warm day, and because of many generous hearts, $16,600+ was raised to benefit the ministry Pine Valley Camp! 

The 101 bikes went out in groups from the New Castle Harley-Davidson Dealership and rode 126 miles to the East Brady Overlook and back.  Following the ride, everyone enjoyed a meal outside, listened to an energizing performance by the band Flashback, and heard who the winners were of the 53 auction items, 50/50 raffle and door prize.    


Thank you to the many individuals and organizations who worked together to make this event a success.  We had 75 sponsors lend their support financially or with an in-kind gift, and 20+ individuals who volunteered their time to direct traffic, prepare/serve food, run the auction and raffles, and do whatever else was necessary to ensure the day ran smoothly.  A special Thank You to the New Castle Harley-Davidson dealership for hosting the ride location again this year.  Your willingness to partner with Pine Valley to make this event a success is appreciated!

The monies raised this year will be directed towards the funding of Pine Valley’s Legacy Lodge, a new dining hall to be built on the camp’s Ellwood City property.  Because the dining hall serves as the heart of camp where much activity and connections occur year-round, the extra space it will provide is desperately needed in order to continue serving the hurting and at-risk kids who come to camp each year.  During a normal summer, over 700 campers get to experience a fun, safe and loving atmosphere while at Pine Valley.  This year, due to Covid considerations, Pine Valley served a smaller number of campers (444) over its usual 7 week camp schedule.  Celebrating its 26th ministry year, Pine Valley remains committed to serving at-risk youth and continues to faithfully fulfill the mission of “Rebuilding Broken Lives through Christ.”

In closing, from Matthew Reichart, Sr., the Executive Director of Pine Valley Camp, and the Event Team members, Thank You for your willingness to support this event.  Your generosity and involvement is greatly appreciated!
