The Evergreens Holds 7th Annual “Cycle of Life” Motorcycle Poker Run

Proceeds to support YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties’ Annual Campaign

Attention bikers! The Evergreens in Moorestown is hosting their 7th annual “Cycle of Life” Motorcycle Poker Run and Residents Walk on Saturday, June 14, 2014. Motorcycle enthusiasts are invited to join this 100+ mile ride to raise money and awareness for the YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties’ Annual Campaign.

The event begins at 8 a.m. with registration and breakfast, followed by a shot gun start at 9 a.m. Riders will leave from The Evergreens for a scenic motorcycle tour throughout South Jersey, ending their ride at The Flying W Airport Resort in Medford, where prizes will be given for winning poker card hands.

“Our expectations are high for this year’s Poker Run,” said Doug Halvorsen, president and CEO of The Evergreens and avid motorcycle rider and enthusiast. “Our goal is to raise at least $15,000 from the event. We will continue to work hard to help our neighbors at the Y and support all of the valuable work they do for our community.”

Sponsorship opportunities are now available.

“We’re so thankful to The Evergreens for continuing to hold its annual Poker Run event to support YMCA programs and services,” said Tim Kerrihard, Y president and chief executive officer. “It’s community partnerships like this that help close the financial gap for Burlington and Camden County families who value or require the Y’s programs and services – like swim lessons, summer camp and child care -  but may not be able to afford them.”

Registration is required – forms are now also available. Riders are encouraged to pre-register prior to Tuesday, June 10th to take advantage of a discount on the registration cost – $25 per rider and $15 per passenger. Participants may also register after June 10th through the morning of the event for $30 per rider and $20 per passenger.

There will be no rain date or refunds for this fundraising event. Riders are asked not to wear “colors.”  Breakfast, lunch and a commemorative T-Shirt will be provided at no cost to riders, and will be available for a minimal cost for supporters.

To pre-register or for detailed information about the ride, participants may contact Nicole Albrecht at nalbrecht@evergreens.org or 856-439-2090 and can request to be added to our e-mail list for the event.
