Engines revved as more than 125 motorcycles departed from Britt Bar & Grill Saturday, June 15, for the tenth annual Koyote Custom Poker Run.

The run was started in memory of the late Jon Weiland, a motorcycle enthusiast who owned Koyote Custom Finishes in Britt, who died in 2009 in a vehicle crash.

Proceeds from the run have been donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, a nonprofit organization that supports children and their families through various programs, for the past five years.

“There’s been a lot of local support because people have been touched by the Ronald McDonald House and used its services,” Carlson said.

“Everybody had a good time and a lot of fun,” said Darin Carlson, one of the run’s organizers.

This year’s event, which drew approximately 150 registered participants, raised more than $6,000 for the Ronald McDonald House.

The Koyote Custom Poker Run was made possible through the support of nearly 30 area sponsors.

“We can’t say thanks enough to all the sponsors who donate, because without them and their support, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do,” he said.

The Koyote Custom Poker Run is held the third Saturday in June. The 11th annual event will take place on June 20, 2020.
