Atlanta Ride For Kids
June 7, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm$40
June 7th will be our 32nd Atlanta Ride For Kids event benefiting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, Inc. The Event will be at the Cumming Fair Grounds and the ride will depart and return there.
Every day, 13 children in the United States get the news that they have one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer.
These kids are our Stars, and you can help them by participating in a Ride for Kids event as a motorcyclist, fundraiser or volunteer. Donations benefit the Pediatric Brian Tumor Foundation’s medical research and family support programs.
Riders on all makes and models are welcome to attend. The suggested minimum donation to ride is $40 per motorcycle. We encourage you to fundraise before the event to make a real difference to the kids.
Online registration is open until noon Eastern on the Friday before the ride. Onsite registration opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 9:30 a.m.
The escorted ride starts at 10 a.m. sharp, rain or shine! The ride will loop back to the start point.
The more money you raise, the more incentive choices you have. Get a collectible T-shirt for as little as $50 per person, plus a Ride for Kids hat at the $300 level. Depending on how much more you collect, you’ll qualify for prizes at different levels.
At the event, we draw for a new Honda motorcycle and other great prizes (must be present to win). All participants receive free beverages, a light breakfast and lunch. You’ll also get to meet your local Stars! Call 800-253-6530 or email us.
The event is from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
