Hop on your motorcycle and ride to raise funds for Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation during the annual Ride for Kids event happening Saturday, May 20.
Life gets hard when you’re struck with the devastating news that your child has a brain tumor. However, there’s help and support all around. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to find the cause and cure of childhood brain tumors. With funds raised through events, PBTF can fund medical research, increase public awareness, promote early detection and treatment, and offer family support programs. This organization was created by the founders of Ride for Kids.
Raise Funds with Ride for Kids
You can support PBTF through Ride for Kids events, which also fund free educational resources, college scholarships for brain tumor survivors and emergency financial aid for families. The family-friendly ride is a motorcycle event consisting of a loop ride, live music, free food and many other activities. This year’s ride takes place Saturday, May 20 from 12 – 4 p.m. at Barfield Crescent Park (697 Veterans Pkwy., Murfreesboro). During the event, you can get to know local Stars (children with brain tumors) and their families. Any brand of motorcycle is welcome as well as non riders, too. You can either register to ride your motorcycle during the event or make a donation to a rider.
