June 16th F.A.T.H.E.R.S. Motorcycle Poker Run Aims To Help Families Dealing With Addiction
Founder, Kara Vogt, was a guest on the Gary Rivers Show Friday morning to talk about the annual motorcycle event. Her husband, and event co-founder, Larry Vogt was unable to be on the show.
Now in its 5th year, the event attracts motorcyclists from across NE Ohio to help raise awareness of the opioid epidemic.
2018’s event had 250 motorcycles, and 367 riders. The end event provided educational resources and live entertainment. Fundraising efforts from sponsorships and community participants totaled over $28,000.00 in proceeds to fund heroin awareness initiatives taking place at CommQuest Services and in cooperation with the Stark County Sheriff’s Department.
