arris, NY – On November 5, Catskill Regional Medical Center, in conjunction with Morrison and Crothall Healthcare, partnered with Ride 2 Survive for a fundraising Smoothie Bike event in the Catskill Cafe. Employees, patients and their families rode a bike that was hooked up to a blender. When pedaled, the bike powered the blender to mix up hand selected fresh fruits and veggies into smoothies which were sold.
