Bikers ride to support Joplin Recovery Outreach Community Center

JOPLIN, Mo. – The Recovery Outreach Community Center in Joplin hosted a poker run for motorcycle enthusiasts in the area, raising money for its program.

Bikers rolled out across a set course, picking up poker cards along the way.

The person with the best hand wins, but ROCC says they’re the real winners appreciating all this support from the community.

The non-profit supports people going through recovery from substance abuse and mental health disorders.

“It’s amazing. We’ve had a pretty good turnout and our community is a really big community in recovery,” said Jennifer Harris with ROCC.

Riders picked up their maps at 10 a.m., and enjoyed a socially distanced lunch afterwards.
