Join the 500th Ride for Kids® on Sept. 25

Every day, 11 more children in the United States are diagnosed with a brain tumor, the deadliest form of childhood cancer. Ride for Kids® has been working to give these children a fighting chance since 1984.

We'll celebrate the 500th event in our history on Sunday, Sept. 25 in Ellicott City, Md. This ride benefits the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® (PBTF), a nonprofit organization that funds medical research and family support programs.

The Baltimore/Washington Ride for Kids® leaves from:

Turf Valley Resort
2700 Turf Valley Rd.
Ellicott City, MD 21042

Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. and closes at 9:15 a.m. The escorted ride starts at 9:30 a.m. sharp, rain or shine!

The ride will loop back to the start point. After a light lunch, participants will enjoy a Celebration of Life program that features interviews with young brain tumor survivors-the Ride for Kids® "stars" of the day. Award presentations to top fundraisers will follow.

The minimum donation to ride is $35, but the more money you raise, the more premiums you earn. For each $300 you raise, we'll enter your name into a drawing for a new Honda motorcycle, AGV helmet, Cardo Scala Rider, Dunlop tire, and Tourmaster luggage. (Must be present to win.)

If you're unable to attend, send your registration form and donations to PBTF, 302 Ridgefield Ct., Asheville, NC 28806. Mark your form "Not Attending" to credit your event and receive your premiums by mail.
