Star Jared is ready to help lead the Marysville Ride for Kids.

Motorcyclists from the Buckeye State banded together for children fighting brain tumors at the 24th Marysville Ride for Kids over the weekend.

The July 11 event, which benefited the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, honored local brain tumor survivors Erin, Jared, Naomi and Seth as Ride for Kids Stars.

“Sometimes we get down, but you are proof that people do care and raise our spirit,” said Erin’s mom, Jennifer.

Across the nation, motorcyclists participate in Ride for Kids to make a difference in the lives of children fighting brain tumors. Their donations fund the PBTF’s medical research and family support programs.

The announced fundraising total was $60,262. The event is still collecting donations online at www.rideforkids.org. Fundraisers will receive incentive credit through Aug. 11.
