Please help us help them….
Every day children continue to lose their battle to brain tumors, the deadliest of childhood cancers. The only way to fight back is through research. Even those that manage to survive continue to struggle with many permanent side effects from the chemotherapy and radiation treatments. New and less invasive methods are needed and this can only be accomplished through research.
The Ride for Kids event is an annual motorcycle ride raising money for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. The PBTF is a non-profit charitable 501(c)(3) foundation that seeks to: (1)find the cause and cure of childhood brain tumors through the support of medical research, (2)increase public awareness about the severity and prevalence of childhood brain tumors, (3)aid in early detection and treatment of childhood brain tumors, and (4)provide hope and emotional support for the thousands of children and families affected by this life threatening disease.
We have chosen to make this charity our primary cause among the many available because it combines our love for riding and helping the many children and families that cannot and should not fight this deadliest of childhood cancers alone. We have participated in the Houston event every year since 1998 and work throughout the year to increase awareness and raise funds.
Your donation, no matter how large or small becomes a symbol of hope to the children and their families, as they face the challenge of daily life, hoping the next medical discovery will be the key to a healthy future.
