The Guardians of the Children Palm Beach will hold its inaugural poker run benefiting the Children’s Healing Institute this weekend. The event will bring together riders from all over the county dedicated to the prevention of child abuse.

A poker run is an organized motorcycle event where each rider travels a prescribed route, stopping at checkpoints along the way to draw a card to complete their poker hand. At the end of the run, the best hand will receive $100 and the worst hand $50.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Children’s Healing Institute. The mission of the Children’s Healing Institute is to prevent child abuse by strengthening families facing crisis, challenge and change.
Through its diversified programs, the Children’s Healing Institute is able to serve 4,000 families each year in Palm Beach and Broward counties. For additional information, visit www.childrenshealinginstitute.org.
