Upcoming 'Poker Run' Biker Events For Charity

Jul 17, 2007

They're big - they're bold - they're bikers! While many people see the American Biker as a fearsome, rough-neck member of society (thanks be to Hollywood!), what they don't often see is the devoted contributions to their community. This comes in the form of charity events, specifically 'Poker Run' events, donating to some of the most respected causes in the Unites States and around the world.

A Poker Run is where a large group of bikers ride a predetermined course, usually many miles long, making multiple stops along the way. At each stop, the player will pick up an envelope containing one poker card. By the end of the ride, each player should be holding 5 cards. The player with the best poker hand wins!

Below is a list of upcoming Poker Run events held for various charities. All poker enthusiasts and/or motorcycle riders are encouraged to join in any of these events - it's not only fun, it's for a good cause. Don't own a bike? Not a problem, visitors are welcome to make donations and join in the festivities.
