Fort HealthCare, in partnership with 2 Rivers Bicycle & Outdoor, hosted the Spin to Win Poker Pedal, a poker-run style 15K and 40K bike ride to benefit the Rock River Free Clinic in Jefferson. The event took place on Saturday, October 19 at Fort HealthCare Therapy and Sport Clinic in Fort Atkinson. Proceeds were given to the Rock River Free Clinic, whose mission is to provide access to free health services through health professionals dedicated to caring for low income and uninsured individuals residing in Jefferson County, Cambridge or Whitewater. Riders picked up a different poker card at each water station and prizes were awarded to the participants with the best poker hands at the completion of the ride. A check was presented to representatives of the Rock River Free Clinic in the amount of $1,365. Shown accepting the check from event organizers Diana Hoffman, RN, and Lisa Jensen, RN, are Free Clinic board president Janet Werner and medical director David Rutledge, MD.
