Asheville, NC, July 16, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Motorcyclists from Marysville, Ohio to northern Indiana hit the road on Saturday and Sunday to raise more than $92,000 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
Nearly 300 motorcyclists attended Ride for Kids events in Marysville, Ohio and South Bend, Indiana, to honor local children with brain tumors. These Stars were Lindy, Jennifer, Daniel, Libbie, Hannah, Corey, Patrick, Jon, Zara, Jayden, Naomi and Erin.
Star Hannah just turned sixteen and is learning sign language. She signed to the crowd, “Thank you, friends.”
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.
The events are still collecting donations online at www.rideforkids.org. Fundraisers will receive incentive credit through Aug. 12 and Aug. 13.
