On May 18, 2013 there will be a poker run motorcycle ride sponsored by Cajun HOG chapter #1681 and Cajun Harley-Davidson. All makes and models of motorcycles and vehicles are welcome.  The poker run will help raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The ride will begin and end at Cajun Harley-Davidson (724 I-10 Frontage Rd, Scott, LA 70583) where there will also be live music and a jambalaya cook-off.

Registration for the poker run is $25 per person starting at 7:00 AM, and pre-registration is $20 per person (must be postmarked by May 10th). The first bike out will be at 8:00 AM and the last bike out will be at 9:00 AM.

All registrations include a free tasty jambalaya cook-off. The jambalaya cook-off will start serving at 11:30AM. Wrist bands will be sold at the event for $5 to get a bowl of jambalaya from every team and to enjoy the live music. All festivities will end at 3:30 PM. For more information or to sign up to cook please call AJ Hebert at (337)289-3030 or the MDA office.

The event will help send youth from Southwest Louisiana to a special week at MDA summer camp. Youngsters with muscle diseases, as well as the many volunteers who help create magic at MDA summer camp each year, enjoy a wide variety of activities designed specifically for children with limited mobility. Some activities include horseback riding, swimming, football, and arts and crafts.

MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides unparalleled health care services, advocates for the families it serves, and invests significant resources educating the medical and scientific communities, as well as the general public, about neuromuscular diseases affecting more than 1 million Americans.

MDA maintains a nationwide network of some 200 hospital-affiliated clinics — 38 of which are designed as MDA/ALS centers that provide unparalleled medical and healthcare services to adults and children with neuromuscular diseases. Families in greater Lafayette are encouraged to visit the MDA clinic here in Lafayette.
