Just in case you haven’t made plans for the weekend, don’t forget the 30th Annual Atlanta Ride for Kids® will be held this Sunday, June 2nd and will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF). As a Bronze sponsor of the event, The Providence Group would love for you to attend and get involved in this important fundraising event. Proceeds from the 2013 Ride for Kids® will benefit PBTF for brain tumor research including diagnosis, prevention, treatment and support programs. The event will be held this Sunday, June 2nd starting at North Point Mall (1000 North Point Circle) in Alpharetta and concluding at Lumpkin County High School in Dahlonega. Rain or shine, the event will still go on so you might want to pack your rain gear just in case!

The cost to participate is $40 per motorcycle if you register early or $50 the day of the event. We hope you can join the hundreds of motorcyclists this Sunday to enjoy a beautiful, scenic ride through the Georgia countryside while raising funds for PBTF’s medical research and family support programs. And don’t forget, even if you can’t participate it isn’t too late to donate by clicking here to donate online.
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is the world’s largest non-government funder of pediatric brain tumor research and they have supported projects in over 50 institutions including Institutes at Duke University, The University of California, San Francisco and the Hospital for Sick Children in Canada. Their scientists continue to work together pioneering research with practical applications such as experimental vaccines and less invasive treatments. Every day, 10 families in the United States receive the news that their child has a brain tumor with 75% of those diagnosed under the age of 15. The research The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation conducts is crucial to saving children’s lives and improving survivors’ quality of life.
On behalf of The 2013 Ride for Kids® and The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, The Providence Group hopes that you are able to participate in the 2013 Ride for Kids® or take time to donate to this important cause that affects so many families throughout the Unites States.
