Utica Ride For Kids

Utica Ride For Kids

From 11:00AM to n/a

Ride with us to cure childhood brain cancer because no one should ever have to hear the words "Your child has a brain tumor." Unfortunately, today, 13 children will be diagnosed with a brain tumor, the deadliest childhood cancer. More children die of brain tumors than any other cancer, and survivors often face lifelong physical, psychological and cognitive difficulties. The Utica motorcycle community has been coming together for over 20 years to help change that. Hosted by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, the Utica Ride for Kids will fund critical research for a cure, as well as family support programs such as emergency financial assistance, peer support and college and vocational scholarships for survivors. You can join us as the Utica Ride for Kids participants will enjoy a scenic, police-escorted motorcycle ride from the Deerfield Fire Department to the George T Hiltebrant Recreation Center in Old Forge. Local pediatric brain tumor survivors will accompany motorcyclists on their ride. Any make or model of street legal motorcycle is welcome, and the whole family – including non-riders – will enjoy a light breakfast and lunch at the event. Although there is no registration fee for the ride, a minimum donation of $40 per person is encouraged, and participants will receive special fundraising incentives.
