The Montrose Auto Group and Leathernecks Nation will team up for a third consecutive year to host a 100 Mile Poker Run on Saturday, June 22 benefiting Valor Home of Summit County. Valor Home offers transitional housing funded in part through the Department of Veterans Affairs with a mission of providing support to homeless veterans in their efforts to achieve self-sufficiency.

The 100 Mile run will begin at Valor Home of Summit County, 1121 Exeler Road in Akron, with registration beginning at 8:30am. Cost to participate is $15 per driver and $5 per rider. The run will begin with the first bike out at 10am and the last bike out at 11am. Each stop of the poker run will feature food and beverage options and riders will earn a playing card to complete their best five card hand. The event will conclude with a banquet featuring prizes and refreshments at the American Legion in Kent, Ohio.

“We’re proud to support the mission of Valor House,” stated Bob Daniels of MaDeuce, the Akron-Canton Chapter of Leathernecks Nation. “Our poker run has grown each year and we look forward to a terrific event again this summer.”

Montrose Auto Group dealerships will be among the stops on the 100 mile run. Montrose founder, President & CEO Michael W. Thompson, an Army veteran himself, expressed gratitude for the fund raising efforts of the Leathernecks.

“As a veteran, I’m pleased to support every effort to give back to the men and women who have served our country. We’re thrilled to partner with the Leathernecks for this very worthwhile cause in support of Valor Home of Summit County.”
