Glick Sponsors 6th Ride to Remember

The Eskenazi Health Palliative Care event Ride to Remember will once again be sponsored by the Glick Family Foundation.

The Glick family is known throughout Indiana for its philanthropy. Gene and Marilyn Glick instilled philanthropic values in their own family and in the company they created, the Gene B. Glick Company. Today, members of the Glick family and the Gene B. Glick Company continue the tradition of generosity that Gene and Marilyn started.

The Glick Fund is focused on making a measurable impact four key areas,

• Increasing educational opportunities
• Promoting arts and creative expression
• Supporting efforts toward self-sufficiency
• Alleviating human suffering and helping those in need

Working with Central Indiana Community Foundation staff, The Glick Fund Advisors proactively seek organizations that align with The Glick Fund impact areas and CICF’s three broader community leadership initiatives of: Family Success & Making Connections, Inspiring Places, and College Readiness—initiatives aimed at making Central Indiana one of the best places in the nation to live, work, and raise a family.

Eskenazi Health Palliative Care is proud to partner with the Glick Family Foundation to honor the memory of past patients under the care of the palliative care program. The partnership will allow for continued growth for the Eskenazi Health Palliative Care program. The Ride to Remember will take place July 11, in Terre Haute, Ind. A team of 25 cyclists will ride 160 miles to Richmond, Ind. to both raise money for Eskenazi Health Palliative Care program and to honor the patients who have passed away during the last year.

Paul Green
Eskenazi Health Palliative Care program welcomes Paul Green to the Eskenazi Health Cycling team as he prepares for the Ride to Remember.

Green will ride along side 25 other Eskenazi Health cyclist as they ride in the Ride Across Indiana (RAIN). The ride stretches 160 miles from Terre Haute, Ind. to Richmond, Ind.

These 25 Eskenazi Health cyclists are riding in memory of the patients that the Eskenazi Health Palliative Care Program has cared for over the past year. It is also an opportunity to raise money for the contiuation of the growing palliative program.

Green says his favorite training route is his morning commute to work at Eskenazi Health from the Northern Hamilton County loops.

Green says there are three reasons he chooses to participate in the Ride to Remember, One; to remember the patients palliative care has cared for, two; he has an obbsession with anything that has two wheels and three; because he can!

Green’s favorite cycling quote is, “Whenever I see an adult on a bicycle, I have hope for the human race.” – H.G. Wells
