Mississippi, Texas motorcyclists Raise $62,000 for the PBTF

Asheville, NC, October 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Ride for Kids motorcyclists in Mississippi and Texas raised more than $62,000 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation on Oct. 26.

More than 400 riders attended the events to honor the Stars, local children with brain tumors: Caiden, Caitlyn Bree, Chris, Heaven, Jocelyn, Katelyn, Katie, Mackenzi, Matt, Otoniel, Prisca and Sutton.

“The Ride for Kids makes us feel like we are a part of one big family. Together we are all trying to fight this terrible disease,” Mackenzi’s mom, Laura, told the riders. “We can’t thank all of you enough for making us feel at home.”

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 Nov. 26.
