Three Surface Creek Valley businesses agreed to participate in a fund raiser poker run last Saturday for a 14-year-old girl who is facing surgery for a rare brain disorder.
The Pondy, Aspen Trails, and the Eagle's Nest were scheduled stops for the poker run event where riders are dealt cards to try and collect a winning hand to win prizes. Participants pay to play and entry fees go to the fund raiser.
Two other businesses that participated were in Fruita and Delta.
Carley Adkins of Fruita is suffering from chiari malformation, according to the poker run event sponsors. Chiari malformation involves a skill abnormality which restricts the room in which the brain can grow. Brain tissue is pushed downward into the spinal cord as a result.
According to medical websites, the condition if serious can be corrected by surgery.
The Carley's Cause Poker Run opened the summer season of motorcycle runs and rallies attracted to the paved roads and scenery of the Grand Mesa.
The run began with a stop in Fruita, followed by another at Hooley's in Delta. Riders followed Highway 65 to the Pondy on Cedaredge's East Main Street, then to Aspen Trails and the final stop on the run, the Eagle's Nest at Old Grand Mesa Road.blog comments powered by Disqus
