Truckers, riders and drivers take to the highways to support kids in the fourth annual “Truckers for Kids Poker Run” sponsored by the California Trucking Association-San Bernardino/Riverside Unit on Saturday, Oct. 12.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the ride starts at 10 a.m.

The event starts at Los Angeles Freightliner, 13750 Valley Blvd., Fontana, and ends at Foundation for Kids, 2970 Myers St., Riverside.

Every day truckers hit the road to move California’s economy forward, but on Oct, 12 those truckers are taking to the roads and highway in and around the Inland Empire to raise funds for the Foundation for Kids. It supports the children’s homes and agencies that help abused and at-risk children throughout Southern California.

The event is sponsored by the California Trucking Association’s Kern Unit. The public is welcome to join these “heroes of the highway” as they ride for a good cause.

“The men and women who drive on our roads and highways every day also live in our communities and want to do their part to serve,” said CTA San Bernardino/Riverside Unit chairwoman Lynette Brown of KKW Trucking, based in Pomona. “This ride is a fun event to bring our community together in support of the Foundation for Kids and the great work that this organization does.”

The ride concludes at the Foundation for Kids facility where participants will turn in their poker hands, enjoy a great BBQ lunch and share memories with fellow riders.
