Jacksonville Ride for Kids Raises More than $20,000 to Date2013 Ride for Kids

Ride for Kids traveled to Northeast Florida on April 21 and celebrated five years hosting the charity event in Jacksonville. Dozens of motorcyclists gathered for the Sunday morning ride, which has raised more than $20,000 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to date.

Skies were overcast but the air was warm as riders gathered at Pecan Park RV Resort to honor five young brain tumor survivors and their families. Read more about the local event here.

Making life better for these Ride for Kids Stars 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 Northeast Florida event is still collecting donations online at rideforkids.org. Fundraisers will receive incentive credit through May 21.

The next Ride for Kids event is Sunday, April 28, in Houston. Register today at rideforkids.org.
