BikeBandit.com Raises More Than $16,500 for Annual Ride for Kids Event

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 21, 2010) -  This past year BikeBandit.com has raised more than $16,500 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's Ride for Kids event. Added to their donations from 2008 and 2009, BikeBandit.com has donated a total of $43,796 to the cause.

Throughout the year, BikeBandit.com runs a fundraising campaign in which $1 is donated each time a Ride for Kids promotional product is purchased. BikeBandit.com is the largest online source for motorcycle parts and accessories, with hundreds of items available for purchase under this fundraising initiative.

Proceeds generated from Ride for Kids are donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to help promote childhood brain tumor research and provide family support through free literature, online conferences and college scholarships. Last year the San Diego Ride for Kids event raised $64,493 for the PBTF. 

"The PBTF is a remarkable organization that is helping pave the way for a cure and we are extremely grateful to be able to assist them with their endeavor. It is great to see the motorcycle community come together to support this event and foundation, not just in San Diego, but all over the country," says Ken Wahlster, CEO of BikeBandit.com and motorcycle enthusiast.

This is the sixth year for the Ride for Kids San Diego event and the third year BikeBandit.com has been involved with the fundraiser.
