Ride for Kids - Western Pennsylvania

Ride for Kids - Western Pennsylvania Motorcyclists ride with us in Western Pennsylvania to raise funds to "cure the kids," in support of the research and family support programs of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF) supports medical research into the cause of and cure for one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer. We also provide educational and emotional support to families, promote early detection and treatment, and raise public awareness about this devastating disease. Brain tumors affect about 28,000 children in the United States, with 13 more children diag

The Concert to Cure The Kids is only a week away! Great music courtesy of the Nied's Hotel Band, Miss Freddye, Cherylann Hawk Music, and Quinn Volpe! A personal thanks to John Vento - Music of the Nied's Hotel Band for pulling together this exceptional group of musicians! And... as our special Emcee, the very talented Jim Krenn Fan Page will add his special touch of Pittsburgh comedy (and maybe even a song or two)!

In addition to the great music, we'll have raffle baskets, silent auction prizes, a wine pull, a 50/50, a spinning wheel, and lots more! And of course Jergel's will be serving great food and drinks!

This is an all-ages event, so we'll also have some games to play outside on the front patio!

You know you have absolutely nothing more important to do on a Sunday afternoon, so come out and have some fun with us!! All proceeds, of course, benefit the Western PA Ride for Kids and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation!

Advance tickets available at https://www.tickettomato.com/event/7144/

The Butterfly Fund provides financial relief to families with children in treatment at partnering medical institutions across the country. With COVID-19’s economic impact increasing patient families’ vulnerability, this support has never been more needed.

Custom Challenge & 8-Hr. Ride Challenge Completed!!! We, along with some of our riding friends, (thanks to Mary, Greg, John, Diane, Nancy & Mike!) did a Custom Challenge on Sunday, Aug. 2, 2020. Our group of 5 motorcycles (2 sidecars, 2 trikes, a 2-wheeler) and a chase car pulled out at 9:00 am, covering over 400 miles to 4 different locations, riding 4 stars and their entire families. The total trip time was 13 hours, arriving home at 10:00 pm. Our starting point was Senaca High School in Zelienople, heading out to pick up our stars Julie in Verona, who did the entire road to Erie. Way to go Julie! Then heading out to Ford City for Toby, then Dakota in Franklin, and our last stop in Erie for Analise. Thank you to Analise’s family for a wonderful surprise of the pizza dinner! We even had a drive-by visit to a local nursing home to see Dakota’s grandma from the window! We had traffic, wind, rain, and darkness but it didn’t dampen our spirits. The families were really glad to see us, the kids were anxiously waiting for their rides, and we all enjoyed the trip, despite the weather challenges.
Kelly Skwortz asked me to post this. Elizabeth Dietz, arriving home yesterday after her ride! Thank you all so much!! ❤️❤️
Josh and family was our last Star stop. ⭐️
Elizabeth was Star stop # 4. ⭐️
