Justen Caris Memorial Poker Run

September 17 @ 9:00 am EDT

$15 – $30

Justen Caris Memorial Poker Run

Join us for another successful poker run and raise awareness for PTSD!


Justen was a combat engineer in the Marines that served on 2 combat tours in Afghanistan. After an honorable discharge in 2013 Justen struggled with PTSD and transitioning to civilian life. In September 2016 he took his own life, leaving behind a loving family and then 6 year old daughter. The goal of the Poker run and the memorial fund is to bring meaning from his passing by raising awareness of PTSD and mental health with Veterans. In addition to raising awareness we raise money for local PTSD and veteran centered organizations.

We have been holding this event since 2017,and have been able to raise nearly $30,000 for local PTSD treatment organizations. Past benefactors of the poker run have been H.O.O.V.E.S., Homefront Hugs, and Task Force 20. This year the event will be supporting Save A Warrior. Without your participation this event would not be possible.
