West Coast riders can participate in the 2016 Los Angeles Ride for Kids charity event this Saturday, October 29, 2016.

Ride for Kids

Team Honda HRC’s Trey Canard, in a 2016 Ride for Kids’ PSA, is raising awareness for the organization.

American Honda Motor Company will commemorate its 25-year anniversary by serving as the presenting sponsor and hosting the event at its Torrance headquarters. Local communities are highly encouraged to come out in support.

Ride for Kids—the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s grassroots fundraising event—is the longest-running, most successful motorcycle charity event in the nation. Since 1984, motorcyclists have raised funds to help children with brain tumors, the top cause of cancer death in children.

More than $125,000 was raised during the 2015 Los Angeles Ride for Kids event, thanks to a turnout of nearly 700 supporters. For 2016, donations have already exceeded $90,000. The overall goal is $145,000.

The 40-mile motorcycle ride will begin at the Honda headquarters before making its way to CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles. All participants who are looking to join the ride aboard their motorcycles should come equipped with the necessary safety gear. The event will provide plenty of fun-filled activities for families throughout the day, including a costume contest, entertainment, giveaway of a new motorcycle, and more.

Registration starts at 8 a.m. and the ride begins at 10.
