Las Vegas Ride for Kids Raises $63K
For the ninth consecutive year, Ride for Kids hosted an event in Las Vegas.
And this year’s ride, which was held Sept. 29 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, raised $63,186 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
The motorcycle charity event attracted more than 375 riders who honored nine brain tumor survivors – the real stars of the ride – Kassidy, Devin, Cheyenne, Diane, Alex, Bradley, Hannah, Kyndell and Nico.
Bradley says: “It’s great seeing all of you coming here for us, donating both your time and money for all of us kids up here.”
The individual, motorcycle club/chapter and motorcycle business with the most raised were Nico Giordano ($8,000); Desert Riders Club ($11,034); and Carter Powersports ($14,454). The top non-motorcycle group was Team Hannah ($2,975).
Patricia Crouse won the drawing for a new Honda CBR250R and Tami Belt won a Bell motorcycle helmet. Debbie Rinaldi won a Tour Master gift card.
The event is still collecting donations online at rideforkids.org. Fundraisers will receive incentive credit through Oct. 29.
