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).
