The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s 22nd Baltimore/Washington, D.C. Ride for Kids, held Sept. 22, had raised $140,043 at press time.

More than 350 people attended the ride, which started on a cool, cloudy morning at the Howard County Fairgrounds in West Friendship, Md. The event’s Stars were local brain tumor survivors Paige, Olivia, Theodora and Nicholas.

“When I first got involved there was little interest in pursuing a cure of pediatric brain tumors,” Johns Hopkins researcher Dr. Chetan Bettegowda told the motorcyclists. “Now as a direct result of the funds you all raise, there have been great strides in the treatments for this disease.”

The individual, motorcycle club/chapter and motorcycle business with the most raised were Bob Henig ($30,868), R&T Motorcycle Club ($15,300) and Bob’s BMW ($18,439).

Thomas Pfarr won the drawing for a new Honda CBR250R and Henry Winokur won a Bell motorcycle helmet. Tom Chicca won a Dunlop tire.

Thank you to the dedicated volunteers who organized the event. The 2013 task force leaders were Tom Chicca and Marcy Rich.

We are still collecting online donations! Fundraisers will receive incentive credit through Oct. 22.
