This year marks the 38th year that Rocky Mountain Harley-Davidson has put on an annual ride the Sunday before Thanksgiving. This motorcycle ride has, for over three decades, seen all types of weather, riders, and routes for a basic poker run. The main difference is that over all these years, almost 2,000 frozen birds have been awarded for participants’ Thanksgiving dinners! Before it became a “Humane Issue,” in the early years, there was even a live turkey given away! [Read more…] about 2018 RMHD Turkey Run

On August 26, the 8th Annual CAF Poker Run will be held as a fundraiser for The Denver Hospice.
Christopher’s Angels Fund (CAF) was founded by Bob and Donna Johnson in memory of their son. Christopher died in the care of The Denver Hospice when he was two years old. The Johnsons struggled financially during Christopher’s illness and struggled to find resources to help. They hoped that by creating this fund, they could ease the financial stress on other families coping with terminal illness.
Family assistance grants from Christopher’s Angels Fund can be requested for non-medical needs like food, mortgage/rent payments, home and auto repairs, special occasions, outings and celebrations, travel expenses, summer camps and other activity fees for children. It can also cover funeral/memorial service costs and direct care expenses not covered by insurance.
Christopher’s Angels Fund truly makes a difference in the lives of families serviced by The Denver Hospice. As families reach the end of a long battle with a terminal illness, their financial resources are often depleted. Many hospice families find themselves dealing not only with the stress of illness, but also coping with being stretched beyond their limits, trying to fit work and other responsibilities into a physically and emotionally demanding experience.
Because everyone who helps with the CAF Poker Run does so in a volunteer capacity, 100% of the funds raised go into the Fund to help the families in need. Check out the Facebook Event Page (8th Annual CAF Poker Run) for more info. The Poker Run starts/ends at In the Zone with registration beginning at 9:00 am.
