Riding for a Cause – Area horse riders participated in a Poker Run, Walk or Trot to benefit the multiple sclerosis program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. According to Spokesperson Libby Landris, the event raised about $1,908 with several pledges left to come in. More than 30 riders participated in the event.
The event included prizes, a potluck and camping at the Luzerne Trail Camp in Luzerne, just west of Mio.
I’ve heard of a poker run with either cars or motorcycles for fundraising, but not riding horses; looks like a fun way to get donations.
In Michigan 19,000 people live with Multiple Sclerosis.
