Albuquerque Ride for Kids®
|June 3, 2012|
New Mexico hosted its seventh Ride for Kids® on June 3, and local motorcyclists contributed $54,555 to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation®.
The PBTF uses the funds for medical research and family support that helps Albuquerque brain tumor survivors like Jaiden, Octavio, Sage, Simmie, Megan, Matthew, and Danielle.
As the “stars” of the day, they had a place of honor in the ride as it left Mesa del Sol Fields at Journal Pavilion. The route included a lap around Napa Speedway and gorgeous desert scenery.
After the ride, Matthew’s mother thanked the 150 participants for contributing to her son’s progress. “You get to see the kids moving on, which makes what you do so worthwhile and rewarding,” she said.
Albuquerque’s top fundraisers were:
- Individuals: Tom & Donna Mitchell, $12,625
- Motorcycle club/chapter: GWRRA NM-W, $14,236
- Motorcycle business: Accessory Pit, $27,349
- Special organization: Mitchell Family, $13,128
The winners of the donated drawing prizes were Ken Watson (Honda motorcycle); Richard Mummey (Dunlop tire); Deane Crawforth (AGV helmet); Rick Howell (Tourmaster gift certificate) and Cindy Cassidy (Cardo Scala Rider).
Local volunteers worked hard all year on this event. Special thanks went to task force leaders Rick and Lynda Howell, Jackie Cooke, and Ralph and Robynn French.
