A benefit ATV-Dirt Bike Poker Run is planned Sept. 22 to assist the Roane County deputy wounded in the Clay County shooting and the families of the troopers who died from injuries sustained in that incident.
Sponsored by the Walton Volunteer Fire Department, the event will charge 10 per rider, according to a news release from organizers of the event. The release said 50 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Roane County Deputy John Westfall, who was wounded in the shooting, and to the families of the two slain troopers, State Police Cpl. Marshall Bailey and Trooper Eric Workman.
The remaining 50 percent of the proceeds will be paid back to the first three places in the event, 25 percent for first place, 15 percent for second place and 10 percent for third place.
Registration begins at noon at the Feddy Huffman Jr. Farm off Lynch Ridge in Walton. Signs will be posted from the Clendenin exit off Interstate 79 and also from Spencer.
A cookout will be held after the ride, and food and drinks will be available.
