Ride for Kids Task Force Members - Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation

Baltimore Washington Ride for Kids

  • 15 people are interested
This is why we volunteer.

This will be the 29th year for the Baltimore Washington Ride for Kids. This one day event usually raises over $50,000 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. The Task Force volunteers meet on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm, around six times a year. We sometimes get dinner beforehand for those who are interested. Lincoln Tech allows us to use one of their rooms for our meetings. The 2020 Ride will be on September 20 at Turf Valley Resort. Although this is a "motorcycle" themed event, being a motorcyclist is not a requirement for task force membership. We welcome any and all volunteers. We could use some people with social media skills to help us promote our event. It's a great cause, a fun event, and a terrific group of volunteers. Hope you can join us.

About Baltimore Washington Ride for Kids

Location:

7691 Sweet Hours Way, Columbia, MD 21046, US

Mission Statement

Hundreds of motorcyclists will ride together at this family friendly event to raise money for research into pediatric brain tumors, which are one of the deadliest types of childhood cancer. The leisurely ride is escorted by the Howard County police. The grand finale features interviews with local childhood brain tumor survivors and award presentations to top fundraisers. They also enjoy 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 with brain tumors.

Description

Over the past three decades, the PBTF has funded research to improve quality of life, increase survivorship and ultimately eliminate pediatric brain tumors. We also offer families free educational resources about brain tumors, a toolkit for newly diagnosed patients, college scholarships for brain tumor survivors, emergency financial aid and other support. Our nationwide events include Ride for Kids motorcycle charity events, Starry Night walk/runs and Vs. Cancer fundraisers.

The PBTF has invested more than $29 million in scientific discovery at more than 50 centers worldwide. We support projects that focus on children and encourage the development of new therapies to improve treatments, increase survivorship and improve quality of life.

Our Research Advisory Network, comprised of the top childhood brain tumor experts in medicine, academia and industry, helps us strategically shape our research funding program for maximum impact.
