|Description||FFSF 2009 World's Largest Poker Run
The Fallen Firefighter Survivors Foundation 2009 "Worlds Largest Poker Run" will take place on Saturday, April 18, 2009. This event, presented by the Red Knights Int'l Motorcycle Club will be held in 12 states at over 43 locations. This unique record attempt will be authenticated by the Guinness World Records as truly becoming a world record event.
Originating in Winter Haven Florida the concept has rapidly grown. The Red Knight participating Chapters have now extended into Alabama, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington. Each planned event will begin at 10 AM in their respective areas. Bikes, trikes, cars and trucks, everyone is welcome.
Registration proceeds are to benefit the Fallen Firefighter Survivors Foundation. FFSF was created in memory of one of our own local fallen heroes Ben Lang FF/EMT. This foundation will offer immediate assistance to the surviving families of any Firefighter killed in the line of duty across the United States. For more information about this foundation please visit their website at www.ffsfusa.org
The opening ceremonies for FFSF and the poker run will begin at Honda of Winter Haven. The Polk County Fire Department Chaplain will preside over the memorial for our fallen and offer the "blessing of the bikes". A Guinness World Records adjudicator will be attending and will present a certificate of authentication on the day of the event. According to the Guinness we will be actually setting precedence as this has never before been attempted.
The numbers are beginning to come in; at this point we are estimating more than 5000 overall. Here in Polk County alone we are estimating 700 to 1000. This will truly be an unforgettable experience for all.
