April 10, 2014

The firefighters of the Wallingford Fire Department are again gearing up for an exciting fundraiser that will benefit The Cancer Center at MidState Medical Center. The fundraiser, known as Riders for Rick, a motorcycle poker run, was initiated by late Wallingford firefighter and former ED employee, Rick Garrison. This year it will be held in his honor and is hosted by his son, Jeremy Garrison.

The poker run is set for Saturday, June 7, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Riders who wish to participate will enjoy 90 miles of scenic Connecticut with stops at the North Branford Fire Department, Gillette Castle, Winchester's, and MidState Medical Center. The ride will conclude with a picnic back at PNA Park in Wallingford. There will be a DJ, live comedian and musician, moonwalk for the kids, 50/50 raffle and more.

Cost is $25 per rider or $35 for a rider with a passenger; $10 for picnic only. For more information, please contact Jeremy Garrison at 203.675.5206 or info@ridersforrick.com.
