iSurf News spoke with Debra Brumfield, a certified instructional assistant (CIA) and the technologies coordinator with Jesse Stuart Elementary who first came up with the idea of putting the event together, and found out more on Taylor’s condition as well as the upcoming Poker Run.

“Around two weeks ago, Taylor was diagnosed with Leukemia,” said Brumfield, “so this Poker Run is all for her.”

“She has to go to Louisville for treatments every Thursday and doesn’t get to come home until Sunday,” said Brumfield. “I think that it may be something that they can get into remission, but she’s currently going through the most intense chemotherapy treatments they can give her.”

“We just want everybody to come out to help support Taylor at the Poker Run,” explained Brumfield. “She’s a wonderful little girl. She’s very smart, and I think this will definitely help her and her family. They have to travel back and forth to Louisville every week, so this is something that they could all really use right now. I’m really hoping that we have a bunch of people to come out and support them.”

The Poker Run will officially start at Jesse Stuart Elementary School on Saturday, October 9th, at noon. Registration for the event will be held the day of the Poker Run, so participants and donators are actually welcome to arrive as early as 10am. In addition, Brumfield said that there would be a donation of $10 required for each hand of cards. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, an auction including several items people have donated from the Madisonville area, t-shirts for sale that read “Fight Like Taylor” in her favorite colors (purple and lime green), as well as the chance to buy additional hands of cards once the actual ride is over.

“All the money we get is going to Taylor,” said Brumfield, “and you don’t have to be on a motorcycle to come out and donate or participate.” 

Furthermore, Brumfield noted that you may drive the course of the Poker Run in your car if you wish, which will move from Jesse Stuart, to Sebree, on to Henderson, back to Hanson, and will end at the starting line—Jesse Stuart.

Brumfield also offered a thanks to all the businesses, groups, and individuals who have already donated to Taylor’s family, such as Dr. Pepper, True Value, O’Reily Auto Parts, Auto Zone, and the market on South Main St. which sells concrete figures and produce. 

If you would like additional information on donating to or attending this heartfelt community event, please call Debra Brumfield at (270) 875-1721.
