Motorcyclists ride to raise money for cancer research

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of bikers rode together Sunday to help beat pediatric brain cancer.

The 30th annual Ride for Kids kicked off at Jim Warren Parkin Franklin Sunday morning.

The fundraiser supports the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to help develop improved treatment options for children with brain tumors.

"There are other kids here today that have the same type of brain tumor that I had when I was seven," said cancer survivor Jessica Stafford. "They don't have to go through quite as extensive treatment as I did, so it shows that their raising money really does help."

Channel Four's Carley Gordon hosted the event.

Ride for Kids is the world's largest non-government funder of pediatric brain tumor research.

Their annual rides take place in more than 40 cities across the country.
