“Ride for Kids is all about channeling what we love to do (riding motorcycles) into a good cause,” said Chuck Boderman, American Honda Vice President, Powersports Division. “REVER’s App-based challenge will help increase awareness of the ride and get riders out on two wheels. This Challenge will also help riders discover the joy of supporting kids in need through our daily riding adventures.”
“We are so excited about this new partnership with Honda and REVER, which will not only get more people out on their motorcycles, but also raise awareness and funds for kids with brain cancer,” said Kelly Dooley, Director of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s Ride for Kids program. “Thank you to everyone who participates—every mile counts in our pursuit of a cure!”
“We can’t think of a better reason to track a ride in REVER than helping kids with cancer,” said Justin Bradshaw, REVER co-founder and President. “Honda and RFK have done an incredible job over the years and we are honored to be joining them to help spread the word of such a great cause.”
The Honda LA Ride for Kids Challenge is based on miles tracked in your REVER app between 12:00 a.m. M.S.T September 20th to 11:59 p.m. M.S.T October 20th 2019.

About Ride for Kids
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s Ride for Kids is the longest-running, most successful motorcycle charity event in the country. For more than 35 years it has fueled lifesaving research and family support programs for children and teens with brain tumors, the deadliest disease facing kids in the United States.
As the world leader in the fight against pediatric brain tumors, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s mission is to care for families along their journey, cure all childhood brain tumors, and help survivors and families thrive. Because of Ride for Kids motorcyclists and other supporters, we have funded and partnered with organizations to fund more than $44 million in scientific discovery to increase survivorship, improve quality of life, and ultimately eliminate pediatric brain tumors. We also provide emotional, informational, and logistical support to families, including the Starfolio Resource Notebook for the newly diagnosed, emergency financial assistance Butterfly Fund, and award-winning Imaginary Friend Society. Ride for Kids is supported by motorcycle industry leaders such as presenting sponsor American Honda, Cycle World magazine, and the American Motorcyclist Association. Motorcycle dealers, industry partners and businesses in each ride’s community also provide support.
