Welcome to the website for the Denise Youngs Annual Memorial Poker Run.

Denise passed away after a short and courageous battle with lung cancer on December 5th, 2006 at age 50. Denise was a long time motorcycle enthusiast and Harley rider who traveled all over the United States with her husband of 30 years, Ron. Denise was a loving mother, aunt and friend who donated her time and energy to many charities and fund raisers. Denise inspired many of her fellow women riders to ride and expierence new adventures. The poker run and this web page are dedicated to help keep Denise's memory alive and to assist local cancer patients and help fund cancer research so that one  day there will be a cure. I believe there are angels among us.



        " I find an old photogragh and see your smile. As I feel your presence anew, I am filled with warmth and my heart remembers love."

                        I FORGET TO MAKE A LIFE

To make a difference in someones life, you don't have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect. You just have to care.


       Most of my money was spent on motorcycles, women and booze. The rest I  just wasted.
