)-- From the Rocky Mountains to the Buckeye State, motorcyclists hit the road to raise funds for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation at Ride for Kids events on June 14.
More than 300 participants gathered in Golden, Colo., and Independence, Ohio, to honor brain tumor survivors Amie, Ashley, Becca, Ben, Colin, Lindy, Lon, Lucy, Patricia, Spencer and Tyler.
“It means a lot that people come together to [show] they care and that people are willing to help,” Colorado Star Spencer said.
Motorcyclists at Ride for Kids events raise funds for the PBTF’s medical research and support programs for children and families around the country.
The events are still collecting donations online at www.rideforkids.org. Fundraisers will receive incentive credit through July 14.
