10th Annual Ride for Hope Motorcycle Ride


September 19, 2023


Dear Riders, Sponsors and Friends,

This past weekend the 10th Annual Ride for Hope benefit motorcycle ride for Pine Valley Camp was a blessed event in so many ways. 160+ riders, meal attendees and volunteers came out on a beautiful sunny day to support this event and because of many generous hearts, $24,000 was raised to benefit the ministry of Pine Valley Camp! 

The 94 bikes went out from the New Castle Harley-Davidson Dealership and rode 115 miles to the Pymatuning Spillway and back. Following the ride, everyone enjoyed the food provided by Muddy Creek BBQ, listened to great music by the band Flashback, and heard who the winners were of the 49 basket 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 78 sponsors lend their support financially or with an in-kind gift, and 20+ individuals who volunteered their time to direct traffic, register riders, serve food, run the 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 once again hosting the ride. Your willingness to partner with Pine Valley to make this event a success is very much appreciated!

The monies raised will be directed towards the building of Pine Valley’s Legacy Dining Hall, a new 300 seat structure 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 will allow Pine Valley to continue serving the hurting and at-risk kids who come to camp each year. This summer, Pine Valley served 600 campers over its 7-week camp program. Celebrating its 28th ministry year, Pine Valley remains committed to reaching out to underserved youth and continues to faithfully fulfill the mission of “Rebuilding Broken Lives through Christ.” To view a camp highlight video, click here 

In closing, from Matthew Reichart, Sr., the Executive Director of Pine Valley Camp, and the Event Team members, Thank You for participating! We are continually thankful for all the people from all around who contribute towards our mission in one form or another! We could not do this without the oversight of the Lord and His people! Your generosity, commitment and involvement are a blessing and we are grateful!
