Ride for Kids, Sunday July 28th - Benefits Pediatric Brain Tumor Association

I rode in this Ride for the first time last year, and I will continue to Ride in it every year I can. There are lots of rides out there for good causes, and this is one of them. At the end of the ride they have some of the children who have, or have had, brain tumors tell their story, and it really brings what you are raising money for into focus. These are kids, just like your kids, or grandkids, who weren't delt the life cards of good health and no problems. They tell their story of what they want, and what they like to do, and what they dream of doing, and its just what every other kid wants. They want to go to the Prom, drive a car, go to school, have friends, and just live a normal life. Donating a few bucks and going for a ride seems like a very small thing to do to contribute.
The ride starts and ends at Pellissippi State Community College. Registration starts at 8:00am and closes at 9:30. Kickstands go up at 10:00am sharp, rain or shine. Registration is $50 and includes a light breakfast, beverages, lunch, and puts you in the drawing for a Free Honda motorcycle which will be given away at the event. More info at
