RGPS Spring Season: Operation Gratitude #GiveGood

The RunGood Poker Series will be proudly supporting Operation Gratitude this season. Operation Gratitude is a 501©(3) that assembles and delivers custom care packages for U.S. service members. At every non-satellite final table this season, RunGoodGear will award limited edition RUNGOOD USA hats and provide RUNGOOD care kits for players to personalize. Care kits will be gathered and hand delivered along with funds for shipping to join awaiting care packages going out at the end of the season.

"It's crazy what the power of giving and being cared about can do for a person's psyche," he said. "Just knowing that someone back home cares. It takes something so small to make a big difference to someone and who knows what the ripple effect is." https://www.pokernews.com/news/2018/01/rungood-spring-schedule-charity-theme-29701.htm

“We would not be able to fulfill our mission without the generous support of corporate partners like RunGoodGear,” said Kirsten Adams, Director of Corporate Partnerships, Operation Gratitude. “We are humbled and deeply moved by their commitment to the brave men and women serving our nation at home and abroad and know that their support will truly help make a difference.” https://www.rungoodgear.com/blogs/news/the-rungood-poker-series-enters-8th-season-with-gratitude

“To get care packages while overseas, especially in combat, words cannot describe the feeling of gratitude,” he says. “They mean the absolute world to us over there; it's like having a piece of home with you.” https://www.pokernews.com/news/2018/03/donor-matches-rungood-efforts-to-aid-troops-30221.htm


“Run Good CEO Tana Karn and Run Good Ambassador Jamie Kerstetter delivered $15,000 and 1,000 care packages (worth $15,000) to Operation Gratitude on Wednesday.” https://www.rungoodgear.com/blogs/news/run-good-delivers-15-000-and-1-000-care-packages-to-operation-gratitude

RGPS Fall Season: Old West #RideGood

The Old West takes over the tour as cowboy boots and hats are encouraged but not required. Every event winner will receive a pair of cowboy boots sponsored by the Boot Factory Outlet alongside a custom crafted Championship Belt Buckle by Montana Silversmiths.

“This is where the build-your-own-rides mentality kicks in. Karn dreams up a new theme for each RunGood season, building the prizes, trophies, scenery and even sponsors around his idea.” https://www.pokernews.com/news/2018/03/tana-karn-dream-factory-rungood-poker-series-30190.htm

“To cement the season’s theme, Championship Belt Buckles were custom crafted for event winners.” https://www.pokernews.com/news/2018/07/rungood-releases-six-stop-season-with-old-west-theme-31349.htm

“The RunGood Poker Series welcomes the Boot Factory Outlet as the official boot supplier for the 2018 Fall Season. With the tour riding into Horseshoe Tunica on August 14th with an Old West theme, it is only fitting to announce that every non-satellite event winner this season will be awarded a pair of cowboy boots.” https://www.rungoodgear.com/blogs/news/a-pair-of-cowboy-boots-for-winners
