The poker run includes several scenic stops across southern Illinois, including the new SIH Cancer Institute, in the highly anticipated event that drew over 500 motorcycle enthusiasts last year. Poker draw sites include West Frankfort City Park, Wayne Fitzgerrell State Park in Whittington, Riverside Park in Murphysboro, SIH Cancer Institute in Carterville all along the route. The poker run is not limited to motorcycles; individuals and couples can also register to participate via personal vehicle (i.e., car, truck).
