Phoenix rides for children with brain tumors


A desert rainstorm didn’t stop more than 150 supporters of the Phoenix Ride for Kids on Oct. 18. Motorcyclists came from across the state to support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s research and family support programs.

The event at Higley High School in Gilbert honored five local brain tumor survivors, our Ride for Kids Stars: Austin, Gaites, Keegan, Leslie and Rosie.
