Benefitting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation
Saturday, June 12
WHAT: Hundreds of motorcyclists will ride together to raise money for research into pediatric brain tumors, which are the deadliest type of childhood cancer.
The leisurely ride is escorted by local and state police. The grand finale features interviews with local childhood brain tumor survivors and award presentations to top fundraisers.
Participants receive special Ride for Kids® premiums and are eligible for a drawing that includes a new Honda motorcycle. They also enjoy free beverages, breakfast pastries and a light lunch.
Proceeds benefit medical research grants and family support programs at the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® (PBTF). Motorcyclists have helped the PBTF raise more than $60 million to find the cause of and cure for childhood brain tumors. Research supported by the PBTF has led to treatments that are extending the lives of children afflicted with brain tumors.
