One of the most popular events at Bikes, Blues, and BBQ is the Firefighters’ Poker Run. And just like Bikes, Blues and BBQ is the “Rally with a Purpose”, these poker runs have a purpose as well.
These runs help to support Camp Sunshine, a summer camp exclusively for children who are burn victims, often severely burned to the point of disfigurement. Camp Sunshine is a place where these kids can just have a good time, with no one staring, no one asking questions. They get to be just kids having a good time. To visit Camp Sunshine is to leave with a lump in one’s throat, and teary eyed. Guaranteed.
The poker runs are fun, the routes are beautiful, the sponsor stops are friendly and appreciative, but most importantly, this is chance to make a real difference in some great kids lives.
To register, go to tent at corner of Dickson and West Avenue or go to Baum Stadium the morning of the ride you wish to participate.
