Mission’s annual Ride for Hospice Poker Run took place Sunday at Fraser River Heritage Park.
About 35 motorcyclists attended the event with a large contingent from the BC Chapter of the Blue Knights, an organization consisting of active and retired law enforcement officers who enjoy riding motorcycles.
Other participants chose to drive the route by car.
The ride began at the park and featured three stops – the Sasquatch Pub, Agassiz parking lot by Jacks Restaurant and Mountain View Harley Davidson – so riders could collect cards for the poker run.
The ride ended back at the park where lunch was provided by the Mission branch of the Elks Club.
The ride is a fundraiser for the Mission Hospice Society and the money goes towards sending children, who have suffered a loss, to camp at the Zajac Ranch.
Organizers were hoping to raise enough money to send 25 kids.
The total amount raised has not been announced at this time.
