Chicagoland’s Stars pose for a picture during the event on Sunday, July 20.
Motorcyclists in Illinois, Minnesota and New York combined to raise $298,661 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation on July 20.
More than 1,300 people attended Ride for Kids events to honor local children with brain tumors. These Stars were Alyona, C.J., Carra, Chernia, Corey, Corey, Jacub, Jenna, Josh, Katrina, Keith, Kevin, Lilly, Mackenzie, Mady, Matthew, Max, Rosie, Stephanie, Tim and Vincent.
Chicagoland Star Rosie said, “I love being with a lot of people who know what we are going through. It’s great to see how many people support us.”
Dr. Kris Ann Schultz of the Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota said, “The battle is won and lost by all of us in the things we do to raise funds for the research which will discover the targeted treatments which will give our children a better outcome.”
Making life better for Ride for Kids Stars is the reason motorcyclists across the country ride for the PBTF, which funds medical research and family support programs to help eliminate the challenges of childhood brain tumors.
