|Description||Ride For Our Heroes Patriotic Poker Run|
The Ride For Our Heroes will be starting and ending at the Town of Marineland’s Coastal Policy Center (9601 Oceanshore Blvd). The course will run throughout Flagler and St. Johns Counties to four local military establishments that will act as checkpoints. Participating motorcyclists will draw a playing card at each checkpoint and the object will be to have the best poker hand at the end of the run.
The fee to enter the “Ride for Our Heroes” will be a $20 donation for pre-registration at GratitudeAmerica.org/Marineland/ and registration will be $25 on the day of the Poker Run. Riders will have the option to be sponsored for each mile of the Poker Run as well (for example, $2 a mile or $140).
Prizes will be awarded at the cookout at 6pm for the best three hands and for the three riders who collected the most proceeds from sponsored miles. The organization that raises the highest amount of donations raised will receive a plaque as well. Those not riding can also enjoy the cookout for a $15 donation and Kids under 18 can enjoy the cookout with a $5 donation.
The proceeds from the ride will go towards supporting the Marineland Military Support Retreats, integrative retreats for local service members and their primary support persons. These retreats and the community forums that immediately follow the retreats are meant to inspire the development of a long-term wellness/healing restoration center for military personnel at the Town of Marineland.
