- on May 11, 2011
Lawrence resident Paul Medlock has organized a motorcycle Poker Run on Saturday for his neighbor and friend, Jim Adams, who is battling brain cancer.
The cost is $20 and $5 for a rider. The proceeds will help pay for medical bills.
Registration for the 100-mile ride begins at 10 a.m. at Slow Ride Roadhouse, 1350 N. Third St. The ride begins at 11 a.m. and will stop at Perry Pub in Perry, Helen’s Hilltop northwest of Tonganoxie, Cutters Smokehouse in Eudora, Set ’em Up Jacks in east Lawrence, and end at Slow Ride. Registration begins at 10 a.m.
Prizes will be:
• Best hand — $100 gift certificate to Set ’em Up Jacks.
• Second best hand — $50 gift certificate to Montana Mikes.
• Worse hand — $50 gift certificate to Cutter Smokehouse.
Adams, who was laid off from work Dec. 31, was diagnosed with three brain tumors Jan. 22. Two of the tumors have been removed, but a third could not be removed.
“I used to ride bikes with him all of the time and he can’t ride anymore. He had to sell his bike,” Medlock said. “He’s just been a real good friend of mine.”
