The American Motorcyclist Association has joined forces with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to promote the PBTF’s Ride for Kids program, which the AMA has sanctioned since 1984.

As an AMA Affiliate Partner, the PBTF will receive a $5 donation for each new AMA membership and $2.50 for renewed memberships using  the code PEBRTU. The AMA will email its members about Ride for Kids events, and Ride for Kids will have a booth at the AMA’s Vintage Motorcycle Days in July.

“The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Ride for Kids are terrific ambassadors for the sport of motorcycling, and we’re delighted to announce our expanded partnership during Brain Tumor Awareness Month,” said Jeff Massey, Chief Operating Officer, AMA. “We look forward to connecting them with even more supporters around the country to help cure the kids.”

The AMA will be recognized as a Ride for Kids partner on event promotional materials, and the membership donation benefit will be shared in Ride for Kids emails and social media posts.

“The AMA and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s Ride for Kids program have worked closely together for years, and AMA members are some of our most loyal supporters,” said Larry Little, vice president and general manager of Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) Events and chair of the PBTF’s board of directors. “Strengthening our partnership emphasizes that Ride for Kids is The Motorcycle Charity Event of Choice and will enable us to help more children fight their deadly disease.”
