Motorcyclists across the South joined Ride for Kids events on Oct. 13 to raise $132,442 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
More than 735 participants gathered for the events at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth and Lexington High School in South Carolina.
The events honored a total of 15 local brain tumor survivors, including Autumn in Dallas-Fort Worth. “If you meet someone with cancer, no matter what kind, tell them to never give up,” she told the crowd.
Making life better for Ride for Kids Stars like Autumn 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. 13.
