A cross-country bike ride will benefit the Howard Memorial Hospital Foundation.
Steve Lewis, a long-time hospital employee, will represent the foundation in a 1,700-mile bike ride from the West Coast to Nashville, beginning March 30.
Lewis will leave from San Diego, Calif., and ride the 1,700 miles back to Nashville. Lewis is seeking sponsors for the trip, and all of the money will go to the foundation.
“Steve is asking for no money for himself; he is completely self-supporting his travel expenses. I appreciate his generosity and hope you will as well,” foundation director Amelia Moorer said.
Lewis’s friend John Aylett will accompany him on the trek.
Lewis and Aylett “have trained endlessly, and on behalf of the foundation, I am honored to reap the rewards of Steve’s efforts. All monies given to Steve in sponsorship will be recorded, and each sponsor will receive a receipt by mail,” Moorer said.
“If you desire to give your money directly to the hospital, you may do so by mailing your check” to the HMH Foundation, 130 Medical Circle, Nashville, AR, 71852,” Moorer said.
Donors may also contact Kim Turbeville or Moorer at HMH with a credit card number, or go by the hospital to leave a cash donation.
“Your sponsorship is greatly appreciated, and you can be proud to not only have supported your local hospital but also to have helped cheer Steve as he accomplishes this amazing feat,” Moorer said.
