Run for the Wall Fundraiser Saturday

One of the biggest fundraisers for the annual Run for the Wall is set for Saturday, May 3.

The Poker Run will begin at noon Saturday at the Best Western in Meridian. Registration begins at 11 a.m.

All the money raised goes to buy food and supplies for the bikers who will arrive in Meridian May 19. Organizers say the event means more than just raising funds.

"It's to bring the veterans rights back into the forefront again, because the veterans, they deserve these rights," said Run for the Wall volunteer Bob Anderson. "They don't need to be taken away. They earned these rights."
