Richmond rides for 10th year
June 3, 2012
Sunny skies matched the mood of the crowd at the 10th annual Richmond Ride for Kids. The event raised $69,156 for the PBTF.
Motorcyclists came to honor local brain tumor survivors Amy, Denise and Kevin, who led the scenic ride from the Times-Dispatch in Mechanicsville, Va.
Afterward, the 250 participants heard from these “stars” as well as Dr. Oren Becher, a researcher at the PBTF Institute at Duke University.
“The only way to get better therapies that are less toxic is through research that your money is helping us to find,” Becher said. “Thank you for your support in helping to find a cure for this disease.”
The leading fundraisers at the event were:
- Individual: Tony May, $20,015
- Motorcycle club/chapter: American Legion Post 284, $8,920
- Motorcycle business: Commonwealth Powersports, $8,711
- Special organization: Team Kevin, $29,325
Richmond’s drawing prizes went to: Mike Seibert (Honda motorcycle); John Schnoering (AGV helmet); Robert Poe (Dunlop tire); Thomas Neilan (Tourmaster gift certificate) and Tom Dixon (Cardo Scala Rider).
The Richmond Ride for Kids was organized by many dedicated volunteers, led this year by Mike Seibert, Pete Nelson, Mark Johnson and Ellaine Wilson.
