Thank you for supporting local groups in Dorchester, Mattapan and Milton!
We had over 50 people participate in our first
annual Pedal Poker River Run on Saturday, October 13!
The main route for walking, running and cycling was a 5k (about 3 miles) on off-street paths along the Neponset River Greenway between Hallet Street and Central Avenue. Some cyclists chose an extended 17+ mile route through Dorcheser, Mattapan, Hyde Park and Milton.
We had participants from all different age groups. We even had dogs!
Those with the best poker hands won AMAZING prizes! Jon (left) won $100 gift card to Abby Park in Milton. Rose (center) won an iPAD (donated by Vargas & Vargas Insurance). And Esther (right) won a Fuji Crosstown 2.0 hybrid bicycle (donated by Ashmont Cycles).
Stay tuned for information on Pedal Poker River Run 2013!
