Each year the Optimist Club of Jackson County holds the Annual Steven Cullifer Poker Run Against Cancer to benefit a child from Jackson County that has Cancer. This year the club was able to present the family of Cade "Wheel" Shouppe with a check for $1,360.00. Wheel was not able to come to the meeting because of a doctor’s appointment but his aunt Jana Baggett was and she was presented the check from the club. Wheel is 12 years old and was diagnosed in July 2003 with T-Cell ALL Leukemia and he is the son of Jeff and Sondra Shouppe.
The Optimist Club of Jackson County would like to thank all of the riders for their participation in the ride this year and we will be looking forward to seeing you next year on the next ride.
