BRONZ Otago / Heart Kids Poker Run - 6th October 2018
Heartkids is the only organisation in New Zealand dedicated to providing life long care and support for children, young people and families impacted by childhood heart defects.
12 babies are born in New Zealand each week with a congenital heart defect, that's one in every one hundred births.
The government does not fund Heartkids at all, therefore they have to rely on fundraisers etc. Which is how and why the BRONZ OTAGO/HEARTKIDS poker run was born, to help raise money for our local Heartkids branch.
The initial poker run, in 2017, was a great success, and so it is going to be an annual event hosted by BRONZ OTAGO.
Our first run raised the profiles of both HEARTKIDS and BRONZ OTAGO so its win win.
We start from Clark St in Dunedin and head south, doing a 400km (appx) loop. We have 5 stops along the way, with each stop just far enough away from each other to ensure everyone has a good time and the day is not to arduous for the novice rider.
The day ends with a prize giving night where raffles are drawn and spot prizes, kindly donated from our sponsors, are randomly handed out, so even if you don't win a poker hand, you could still go home with a prize, and there is also a few beverages to be consumed.
The poker run will always be held on the first Saturday of October every year.

Our general meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month. Meetings are held upstairs at the St Kilda Tavern – corner of King Edward St & Bay View Road, Dunedin. All motorcyclists and anyone with an interest in motorcycles are welcome.
