The countywide Motorcycle Poker Run raises awareness of the Heroin Crisis that is affecting the whole community.   They expect hundreds of riders. Last year there were 386 motorcycles and it’s expected to be over 500 this year.

The end event provided educational resources and live entertainment. Our fundraising efforts from sponsorships, and community participants like you totaled over $28,000.00 in proceeds to fund heroin awareness initiatives taking place at CommQuest Services and in cooperation with the Stark County Sheriff’s Department.
