Star Jennifer is all smiles at the Northern Indiana Ride for Kids.

Motorcyclists showed their support for children with brain tumors by raising $53,920 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation on June 28.

More than 200 participants gathered for the Northern Indiana Ride for Kids in South Bend to honor brain tumor survivors Adler, Daniel, Hannah, Jayden, Jennifer and Libbie.

“I graduated from St. Mary’s with a teaching degree. I would not have been able to do it without the help of the PBTF and the scholarship I received,” said Star Libbie. “I come out here every year so that I can give back and show my gratitude for all you guys have done for me.”

Motorcyclists across the United States join Ride for Kids to make a difference in the lives of children fighting one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer. Their donations fund the PBTF’s medical research and family support programs.
