Hundreds gathered at the Silver Dollar Cafe and Gift Shop in Collinsville for this year's Poker Run. This year’s run was all for a little girl who's fighting for her life.

11-year-old McKenna Zamora has a condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, which means only half of McKenna's heart works.

"The joy you have brought my daughter for the past few months is beyond comparison,” April Zamora, McKenna’s mother, said.

The Poker Run featured the Iron Pigs Motorcycle Club and retired and active first responders aimed to raise money for McKenna's medical expenses.

"There is no cure,” Zamora said. “There is (sic) three surgeries that can help prolong her life, but eventually she will need a transplant.”  

Michael Heisten with the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 188 said the group wanted to support McKenna because her mom is a dispatcher for the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office.
