The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® (PBTF) took home Recreational Road Riding Organizer of the Year honors at the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Racing Championship Banquet in Las Vegas on Nov. 20.
Ride for Kids® is the PBTF’s signature event, taking place in 40 cities around the country. Proceeds benefit medical research and family support programs for children with brain tumors. Motorcyclists have contributed more than $54 million to the cause since the program began in 1984.
“We are pleased that the AMA has recognized our efforts to mobilize motorcyclists behind a very special cause,” said Kyle Clack, Ride for Kids® National Director. “Many of the riders who attend our events are AMA members, and they are helping us make a difference in children’s lives.”
PBTF and Ride for Kids® co-founders Mike and Dianne Traynor received the AMA’s Hazel Kolb Award in 1992 for their positive influence on the image of motorcycling. Mike Traynor was AMA Road Rider of the Year in 1995.
