2014 Ride for Kids Moves to Cumming-Forsyth Fairgrounds

It's set for June 1.

Atlanta motorcyclists are gearing up for the 2014 Ride for Kids, a fundraiser for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

This year’s event has several exciting new features, including a different venue. The June 1 ride will begin and end at the Cumming-Forsyth County Fairgrounds, according to the press release.

And for the first time, there’s no charge to ride to find a cure for one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer. It's more than a free ride, according to organizers, who encourage a minimum donation of $40 per motorcycle to give local kids with brain tumors hope for a brighter future.

Click here to register for the 2014 Atlanta Ride for Kids. Online registration is open until noon Eastern on the Friday before the ride. Onsite registration opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 9:30 a.m.

The escorted ride starts at 10 a.m. sharp, rain or shine.  

The more money participants raise, the more incentive choices they have. Get a collectible T-shirt for as little as $100 per person, plus a Ride for Kids hat at the $300 level. Depending on how much more participants collect, you’ll qualify for prizes at different levels.

At the event, organizers will draw for a new Honda motorcycle and other great prizes; participants must be present to win. All participants receive free beverages, a light breakfast and lunch.
