|Judy Tyler, Margaret Bushell, and Kym Corkum|
The Ride For Hospice was founded in 2009 by the efforts of three dedicated women, Kym Corkum, Judy Tyler and Margaret Bushell. Corkum and Tyler had attended a Hike for Hospice and wanted to create a similar event that would include a horseback ride. They then contacted Bushell, who helped with organization and added the manpower of the Pasco Sheriff's Mounted Posse. Margaret along with her husband John, hosted the Ride For Hospice at their Diamond 'B' Ranch in Dade City for the first four years.

It seems that each of us have a friend or loved one who has benefited from the wonderful care and counsel provided by Hospice. This is our way to give back to an organization that helps so many. We are very proud that 100% of the proceeds from the Ride For Hospice are dedicated to patient care at Gulfside Hospice.
