"Ride for Kids®" Featured on "Saturday Spontaneity" -- Saturday, August 21
When a friend's child was diagnosed with a brain tumor, Mike and Dianne Traynor started the "Ride for Kids®" program in Atlanta, GA in 1984.
The success of the first "Ride for Kids®" event in Atlanta led to the program's expansion to Chicago in 1989.
There are now 43 rides across the country.
With the support of America's motorcyclists, the program raises awareness and funds to pay for research in the nation’s leading brain-tumor-research centers.
This year's (19th annual) Michigan ride is Sunday, August 29. Starting and ending at Wastenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, the 50-mile ride offers both trail/street and street routes.
Tune in tomorrow at 2pm when Dennis and Lynn welcome Michigan Task Force Leaders Ralph & Jean Hunt and George & Claudia Ellison, along with very special guest Ruthie Barkin.
