Did you know that brain cancer kills more children than any other disease?
That children’s brain cancer research is the least funded of all types?
That 28,000+ children in the U.s. are currently suffering from a brain tumor diagnosis?
Or that the average age of death for a child with cancer is 8?
Neither did I.
Now, you’re probably wondering what the correlation is between those statistics and a CB1100, right? Read on and I'll explain.
In a few weeks, in partnership with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation / Ride For Kids, American Honda, GEICO and CycleWorld Magazine, we'll be taking delivery of a brand new CB1100 and over the next few months, will be transforming it into a modern representation of and homage to, the iconic Honda race bike Dick Mann road to victory in 1970 at the Daytona 200. The CR750.
And then, we're going to hold a drawing to give it away. Not a bad deal, huh?
THE GOALS ARE SIMPLE:
Build an awesome motorcycle
Spread awareness about children's brain cancer
AND raise a ton of money to help fight it!
I'll soon be heading up to their facility in North Carolina to meet their team and several of the brave little kids whose lives they’re affecting and will be bringing their stories back to share with you along with the build as it progresses.
Follow @curethekids and stay tuned for updates and information on how to enter the drawing!
ABOUT THE PEDIATRIC BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION AND "RIDE FOR KIDS"
RIDE FOR KIDS is the longest-running, most successful motorcycle charity event in the nation. Since 1984, motorcyclists have raised funds to help children with brain tumors, which are the top cause of cancer death in children.
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation was created in 1991 by the founders of Ride for Kids, and is now the leading nonprofit funding research into childhood brain tumors. Our events also fund free educational resources, college scholarships for brain tumor survivors and emergency financial aid for families.
