As for the car and bike enthusiast, they will be cruising in a 100-mile poker run. Dean Holland talked about the variety of vehicles at the event…

Funds raised at the Poker Run will go towards the cost of new affordable Habitat homes for local residents, who will help build their future home... That was Melissa Cross with Habitat for Humanity in Rutherford County. She told WGNS that Habitat homeowners have to go through a financial class once they’re approved to receive a loan to buy a Habitat home. By-the-way, Cross said the new homes are meant to be affordable for lower income residents. The monthly payment on a Habitat Home is typically around $800 per month.

After the marathon and poker run, participants and supporters will gather at the Mayday Brewery in Murfreesboro for LIVE music, lots of food and fun. For tickets or to sign up to be in the Poker Run or Marathon, visit EventBrite.com and type in Habitat Poker Run.
