The MAC Poker Ride was conceived in 2015 after learning that another popular local charity event was being cancelled. We felt the area needed some kind of event to replace the one that had left and for that reason the poker ride was created. Our first event was conceived, planned and executed in 3 months. The event was a huge success with close to 300 cyclists attending. We donated $5,000 to the Ada Jenkins Center in 2015 and we gave away over $3,000 in prizes to event participants. In 2016 we were able to partner with the Rotary Club, Mooresville Rescue Squad Fund, Sam’s Club of Mooresville and a few other private donors to raise $23,000 to purchase a new van for the Ada Jenkins Center. We also gave away over $3,000 in prizes to event participants.
The MAC Poker Ride will:
- Benefit local charity
- Encourage an active lifestyle
- Provide the opportunity for the cycling community to get involved and give back locally
- Highlight community responsibility
- Broaden your horizons with a challenging fitness activity
