Pedal Poker River Run | October 19

Ride, walk or run along the Neponset River, collecting a full poker hand at stations along the way. The best hands win great prizes. This is a fun, low-key fundraiser that can be played at your own pace. Raise money for one of your favorite organizations: Boston Natural Areas Network, Brookwood Community Farm, Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance and/or Mattapan Food & Fitness Coalition.
Main route is a 5k along off-street paved paths (registration begins at 1:30pm). A longer (17.5 miles) route through Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park and Milton is available for stronger cyclists (registration begins at 12:30pm).
Registration is free, but we are requesting a minimum $25 donation from participants 12 years and older with a goal of $100 raised by each person.

The Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance (MAHA) is a statewide non-profit group that works to encourage local and state government and businesses to invest more money in affordable housing. Since 1985, our organizing of tenants and home owners to voice concerns and break down barriers to affordable homeownership has resulted in 2.8 billion in investments. MAHA's research on important housing issues and our award winning homebuyer and homeowner classes for consumers in the Boston area, make the most of the programs MAHA has helped put in place.
