Annual Poker Run Benefits Local Teen

Posted: Updated:

WEST RICHLAND, Wash. - Hundreds of riders came together in West Richland to support a teenager badly hurt in a dirt bike accident.

Motorcyclists rolled into Tye's Bar and Grill on Van Giesen Street for the annual Poker Run. They're raising money for 17-year-old Tyler Hall who was injured while dirt biking back in December.

His mom, Gayle Hall, couldn't believe the support they're receiving. "It's really overwhelming. People have just come out of the woodwork. You don't realize until something happens to you and it's just overwhelming," said Gayle Hall.

Tyler spent almost two months at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after the accident. He will return to Children's Hospital where his mom said he's making huge strides to recovery.
