This past Sunday was the 8th annual Triangle Area Ride for Kids out at Jordan Lake. There were over 760 participants in this years ride and we raised $109,824.00 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.  The weather was fantastic and the ride was a blast.  I couldn’t get a wide enough angle with my little point and shoot to capture all the motorcycles but you can see there was a sea of bikes at the event.

We had the Cary Police Escorting us on the ride with their spiffy new department motorcycles.

I had my bike all polished up and spiffy for the ride. Best looking bike there if I do say so myself 😉

If you look closely you’ll see a goofy looking guy on the right side of the stage in the red and black motorcycle jacket. That’s me. I was the Fifth Place Individual Fund Raiser at this years event and I got a little recognition for my efforts.

We heard from a parent of a brave kid who has been winning his fight against his brain tumor, and we heard from a doctor from Duke University who has been doing a lot of great research to fight these tumors. Then the kids presented teh check for the foundation with this years total on it.

It was a great event and I just want to thank everyone who donated again for your generosity and support. Thank you so much for your help. These kids will all benefit from it through the programs and research funded by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. On behalf of my family and myself, thank you very much.
