Plans Underway for 16th Utica Ride for Kids

(Deerfield, NY – May 2013) Hundreds of motorcyclists are expected to ride together to raise money for research into pediatric brain tumors, which are the deadliest type of childhood cancer.

The leisurely ride is escorted by local and state police. The grand finale features interviews with local childhood brain tumor survivors and award presentations to top fundraisers.

Participants receive special Ride for Kids incentives and are eligible for a drawing that includes a new Honda motorcycle. Included are free beverages, light breakfast and lunch.

Proceeds benefit medical research grants and family support programs at the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF). Motorcyclists have helped the PBTF raise more than $70 million to find the cause of and cure for childhood brain tumors. Research supported by the PBTF has led to treatments that are extending the lives of children afflicted with brain tumors.

The event will take place Sunday July 21. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and closes at 9:30 a.m. at the Deerfield Volunteer Fire Department, 5476 Trenton Road, Deerfield. Kickstands up 10 a.m. sharp, rain or shine.
