Riding for a Cure

16 May

Since 1984, Ride for Kids® has been helping laboratories worldwide take steps toward new and more innovative treatments for young patients with brain tumors. The program has grown to the point where the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® (PBTF), is the official charity of the Honda Riders Club of America. Thanks to the generous support of Honda and other motorcycle industry companies, the program has raised more than $50 million for pediatric brain tumor research.

As the world’s largest non-governmental source of funding for childhood brain tumor research, the P.B.T.F is dedicated to not only eradicating this disease, but to provide support to families like Miriam. Their educational resources deliver comfort and hope to families in need of information, and their college scholarship program gives brain tumor survivors a boost for the future.

“Fundraising with Popcorn Palace is super easy and convenient.  We are out at events during the day at our booth promoting our charity and having the snack size bags for sale. People are hungry and there isn’t always food available for a quick, tasty and healthy snack. The response has been very positive. I love the way the bags are packed all ready to go!”

    I have been going to Ride for Kids events since it started in Southern Cal. The strides that have been made in the search for a cure have been tremendous! This Charity helps both the children and their families. Great to see the sirvival rate getting higher. Great Charity!

    These kids are awesome if you’ve ever been fortunate enough to spend anytime with them they have a thing or two to teach you about gratitude & heart.

    Ride for Kids and the PBTF are truely an outstanding group. After 10+ years of helping out and seeing other volunteers return and our numbers grow, it is a great thing! Come to one big event and see the smiles on the faces of the kids and the family members as they get out of the hospital and away from it all for the day! The money actually goes to research!

    A more worthy cause and dedicated core group of volunteers will not be found anywhere else. And if ‘enduring love’ is a term for which you wish to find a definition then a short time spent around the parents and siblings of those affected with the disease will forever touch and leave you with a visual of its meaning.
