Rickey Gadson's Charity Ride For Pediatric Diabetes

Friday Feature

Most people know 9-time Drag Race Champion Rickey Gadson for his success in quarter miles. What they might not know about Rickey is his personal connection to "the silent killer," pediatric diabetes. Having lost his brother at age 37, Rickey is dedicated to this cause and wants to bring more attention to the need for a cure. Recently, Rickey and a compassionate group of motorcycle riders rode 600 miles from Philadelphia, PA to Myrtle Beach, SC to raise awareness and donations for this cause. 100 percent of the proceeds went to The Diabetes Center for Children (DCC) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Pa.
