'Chad's Ride' Poker Run benefits Cystic Fibrosis Foundation The first-ever "Chad's Ride" Poker Run, which benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, took place Sunday, July 16. Despite the heat. riders took advantage of the beach ride-and headed out for a good cause.

In The Dog House. and XXPosure for their donations and time. Understanding and facing the reality of the disease has been made easier with this help, said Melissa Wilkins, event organizer. This being the first annual event was a learning experience and the feedback received from riders is a tremendous help for next year. she noted. "Riders have been stereo- typed for many years as being ruthless, troublesome, and too hardcore for today's society, when in fact. it is far from the truth. They will ride for miles and miles to help people they don't even share the open road with them and give a thumbs up for their desire and dedication to help others." she said. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation does not receive any federal or state funds for its research: it relies solely on individuals and corporate sponsors for support. With this in mind. it is hoped that "Chad's Ride" Poker Run will become an annual event. All ideas and comments are welcomed by calling 947-1351.
