)-- More than 330 motorcyclists gathered for children battling brain tumors at the San Diego Ride for Kids event over the weekend.
As of ride time, this motorcycle event had raised $35,912 to support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
The event at Mira Costa College in Cardiff honored four local brain tumor survivors, our Ride for Kids Stars: David, Giovanni, Michelle and Steven.
“Because of all of you motorcycle riders, children are living long enough to go to college and finish college and graduate,” said Star Michelle, former PBTF scholarship recipient.
The event is still collecting donations online at www.rideforkids.org.
