Motorcyclists Roll into Ride for Kids® Office for Ride to Work Day
June 22, 2010
North Carolina motorcyclists celebrated Ride to Work Day on June 21 at an open house at the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF), home of the national Ride for Kids® program.
Classic race films ran in the background as dozens of riders mingled over free pizza and ice cream. Many lucky attendees went home with door prizes such as T-shirts, hats, gift certificates and books about motorcycling.
All the fun had a dual purpose-raising awareness about two-wheeled transportation as well as the difference motorcyclists are making against a deadly disease.
"Our second annual Ride to Work Day open house was a big success," said Ride for Kids® National Director Kyle Clack. "It was fun seeing all the different bikes in our parking lot, introducing more people to our work and celebrating all the reasons that riding is a benefit to everyone."
