Weekend donations exceed $156,000 at Ride for Kids
July 29, 2013
The following is an industry press release...
Star J.T. is all smiles at the start of the Kansas City Ride for Kids.
Motorcyclists came to the aid of children fighting brain tumors by bringing $156,819 in donations to Ride for Kids events on July 28.
Twenty-one young brain tumor survivors attended the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation events on bright, sunny days in Overland Park, Kan., Marysville, Ohio, and Knoxville, Tenn.
“It makes me so happy being a survivor at the Ride for Kids and I want that for other kids,” Kansas City Star Carter said. “I want them to have a chance to do Ride for Kids, too.”
Making life better for these 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.
