The Poker Run (as it does every year) benefits to raise awareness and funds for CART | Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust. The CART Fund is a non-profit grassroots organization that provides “seed” money for cutting edge, high impact research grants to help find a treatment or cure for Alzheimer’s Disease. Hence our "RIDE FOR THE MEMORIES" theme for the Poker Run.
