Tampa Bay Area Motorcyclists Ride for Kids, PBTF

Asheville, NC, November 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Ride for Kids rounded out the 2013 season with motorcyclists raising $38,336 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation at the Tampa Bay Area Ride for Kids on Nov. 3.

About 190 participants gathered for the event at Heinrich Training Center in Lithia. The event honored four local brain tumor survivors: Trinity, Gina, Tammi and Adriana.

“It’s because of the support of motorcycle riders everywhere that I was able to go to college and now work for the [Veterans Administration],” Star Tammi said.

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 event is still collecting donations online at www.rideforkids.org. Fundraisers will receive incentive credit through Nov. 27.
