BENEFITING: CHILDRENS SMILES
EVENT DATE: Mar 09, 2013
Riding for Self Confidence is a Motorcycle Poker Run. This year’s Riding for Self-Confidence will sponsor the children of John Joaquin; killed on Dec. 13th in a tragic accident on the 805. He was a school bus mechanic for the San Diego Unified School District and was repairing a broken school bus when a lady lost control in the rain and slammed into the back of the bus pinning John in the engine compartment. Sadly John did not make it, leaving behind his beloved wife and their three daughters (ages 3, 8 and 10). Children's Smiles will provide the three little girls all of the necessary resources they will need to pull through this traumatic experience and continue striving to succeeding in school and in life. They will be awarded education grants, clothes, medical attention, mentors and so much more! You are invited to restore the self-confidence in these beautiful children.
About the Poker Run:
Motorcyclists from all over San Diego County will take a self-guided 90 mile scenic ride throughout San Diego’s east county. Upon check-in, riders will receive the first card of their poker hand. They will then have the opportunity to stop along their route at three different locations to collect three more cards and fuel-up at our pit stop stations provided and sponsored by Fit Body Bootcamp. Once they complete their ride, motorcyclists will meet back at our ending location to pick up their fifth and final card. There will be awards for the best poker hand along with a celebration BBQ for all to enjoy!
