In observance of Brain Tumor Awareness Month this May, Why We Ride Films is launching two initiatives to help raise funds as part of our ongoing partnership with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF), home of Ride for Kids. We will be donating a portion of proceeds from our May DVD sales to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. We will also be hosting the “Why We Ride to the Quail” benefit dinner in conjunction with The Quail Motorcycle Gathering.
We would like to announce that Why We Ride Films will donate $5 to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation for every copy of the DVD sold on www.whyweride.com in the month of May. Why We Ride producer James Walker and producer/director Bryan H. Carroll will be kicking off the month-long fundraiser at the 2015 Los Angeles Ride for Kids, set for May 3rd at American Honda Motor’s headquarters in Torrance, CA. “Our fundraising efforts couldn’t go to a better organization,” said Why We Ride producer James Walker. “We are always astounded by the work that the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation does for families afflicted by this terrible disease, so we are happy to lend our support with the fundraising initiative.”
On May 15th, Why We Ride Films is hosting a fundraising dinner on Friday, May 15th in conjunction with The Quail Motorcycle Gathering in Monterey, CA. The 1st Annual “Why We Ride to the Quail” Riders Dinner is open to the public and includes dinner, a pass to The Quail Motorcycle Gathering, and a gift bag. Attendees are also encouraged to join the group ride on Saturday morning from the Hyatt Regency to The Quail Motorcycle Gathering. Bell Helmets, Eagle Rider and The Sturgis Museum are also providing support for the dinner and ride, and proceeds from the event will be donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
Why We Ride producer/director Bryan H. Carroll said, “We will be doing everything we can to help raise awareness and funds for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation this May and beyond. Our message has always been about family and inspiring the next generation of riders, and we’re honored to be able to offer two unique ways for people to support the Foundation.”
“We are very grateful for the ongoing work that Why We Ride Films is doing to help support our cause,” said Steve Reynolds, National Director of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s Ride for Kids program. “We are very excited to be involved in their events and fundraising initiatives in the motorcycle industry, and we hope that together we can continue to raise funds and increase awareness of this disease.”
