Ride for Kids launched its season-opening rides in Southern California and South Florida with motorcyclists raising $92,912 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
More than 400 motorcyclists gathered for the events in San Bernardino, Calif. on April 12, and Deerfield Beach, Fla. on April 13. The events honored each city’s local brain tumor survivors, our Stars: Jonathan, Nick, Travis, Izaiah, Kate, Brandon and Bryan.
“When I learned on Sept.11, 1998, that Brandon had a brain tumor, I was faced with the scariest thing I’ve ever had to deal with,” said Paul, father of Southern California brain tumor survivor, Brandon. “I knew my motorcycle friends were the ones who were going to help save his life.”
Making life better for Ride for Kids Stars is the reason motorcyclists across the country ride for the PBTF, which funds medical research and family support programs to help eliminate the challenges of childhood brain tumors.
The events are still collecting donations online at www.rideforkids.org. Southern California fundraisers will receive incentive credit through May 12, and South Florida fundraisers receive credit through May 13.
