PBTF's Ride for Kids announces new national Ride for Kids Day, scheduled for September 12, 2021
Riders across the nation will come together to support children battling brain tumors as dozens of Ride for Kids events will take place on the same day for the first time in over 30 years.
On Sunday September 12th, 2021, riders across the nation will join forces on a singular day to support the 28,000 children and teens living in the United States with a brain or central nervous system tumor. The new nationwide Ride for Kids Day announcement comes with the celebration of American Honda's 30th anniversary as the presenting partner of Ride for Kids.
As the nation's longest running charitable motorcycle ride, Ride for Kids has raised millions of dollars to support research and family programs for children battling brain tumors. Local rides have traditionally taken place on various days throughout the year. After having to adjust in-person ride events to a virtual experience in 2020, the Ride for Kids community's goal is to elevate awareness and fundraising by hosting every ride across the nation on September 12, 2021 and capitalizing on the out-pour of support for children battling brain tumors during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Ride for Kids also offers a virtual do-it-yourself component for riders anywhere who want to ride in support of children with brain tumors.
For 30 years, Honda has walked alongside the PBTF in the search for a cure, providing critical funding for family support programs and medical research. The investment of partners like Honda has allowed the PBTF to fund over $47 million in pediatric brain tumor research to date.
Registrants and fundraisers can win Honda motorcycles and/or ATV utility vehicles, along with other fundraising incentives. The event offers top fundraisers additional incentives. National and local corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available. To take part in Ride for Kids, gather additional information, or donate, visit www.rideforkids.org.
