Atlanta Ride for Kids®
|June 5, 2011|
Motorcyclists at Atlanta’s 28th Ride for Kids® raised $116,537 on an unusually hot June morning.
Nationally syndicated talk show host Neal Boortz was the grand marshal for the ride, which left from North Point Mall in Alpharetta. It followed a combination of four-lane highway and scenic back country roads to the historic gold mining town of Dahlonega.
Once there, the 800 riders and supporters honored the accomplishments of six local brain tumor survivors, Craig, Mandy, Christopher, Malerie, Jessica and Madison. They also heard from Jay, whose daughter Alyssa couldn’t attend.
“This is my fifth year attending this ride, and the help you provide us is amazing,” he said. “The foundation provides help to parents by providing a support group. Especially for us dads, that support goes a long, long way.”
Generous donors and hardworking fundraisers make the PBTF’s family support program possible. In Atlanta, the efforts were led by:
• Individuals: Jennifer & Brian Duke, in memory of their daughter Hunter, $15,481
• Club/Chapter: North Georgia Rat Pack, $7,689
• Motorcycle Business: Cycle World of Athens, $9,735
Congratulations to Atlanta’s drawing prize winners: Donna Cox (Honda motorcycle); Theda Schnute (Dunlop tire); Ray Harmon (AGV helmet); Andy Tierney (Tourmaster gift certificate) and Steve Burwell (Cardo Systems headset).
Volunteers deserve the thanks for planning the Atlanta event. This year’s task force leaders were Steve and Morissa Burwell and Carrie Patterson.
Each state requires PBTF to approve your fundraiser, so contact us early in your planning process. The first step is to complete our fundraising application.
