Motorcyclists at the inaugural San Antonio Ride for Kids on Oct. 27 honored five young brain tumor survivors: Jocelyn, Tristan, Heaven, Mackenzie and Lauranda. At press time, the event had raised $23,072 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
“Every day, [we] hug each other because we don’t know what tomorrow brings,” Lauranda said. “We are so thankful for all of you riders because you embrace us like we are family and we feel at home.”
More than 235 participants gathered for the event at Retama Park in Selma, Texas. Making life better for Ride for Kids Stars like Lauranda is the reason motorcyclists across the country ride for the PBTF, which funds medical research and family support programs to help eliminate the challenges of childhood brain tumors.
