This Saturday, Tori Murphy will host the 20th annual Derrik’s Ride Poker Run in honor of her son who died of cancer. The event starts and ends at Old Abilene Town.

Derrik’s Ride is a charitable event for cancer research for children started by Tori Murphy in 2003 when her son passed away from cancer at age 6. Ever since it has become a family legacy and tradition that has garnered a lot of attention outside of Abilene as well as in other states besides Kansas.
