Countdown to the "Ride 4 Kids" on June 24th in Pleasanton, CA

Well, it’s finally arrived! In a few weeks on (Saturday) June 24th , the Pleasanton “Ride 4 Kids” is happening, and we’re hoping for a great turnout.
This is your individual invitation to join me, and hundreds of others, for the “Ride 4 Kids”. The ride itself is more of a police and highway patrol lead parade, in which many of the survivors “Stars” of pediatric brain tumors and their family members will hitch a ride on our bikes, trikes, scooters and sidecar outfits for a scenic one hour ride throughout the Tri-Valley area of Pleasanton, followed by a light lunch and celebration of life. This will be a very moving day, and one, which I’m sure, you’ll want to participate in again and again in coming years. The planning is done, the route is set, the event is running as planned, and all that is now needed is the participation YOU and your friends.

So, here are a few options for each of you: (1) Join the Task Force for their last meeting before the ride on June 16th at 0900 hrs at the Pleasanton Middle School, 5001 Case Avenue, Pleasanton, CA. (2) If you'd like to volunteer the day of the event for traffic control, sign-ins etc, come to the mandatory volunteer orientation meeting either on Friday, June 22nd, at 6:00 p.m. OR Saturday, June 23rd, at 4:00 p.m. Both orientation meetings will be at the above mentioned Pleasanton Middle School. (3) If you'd like to "escort" (have one of the children or their family members ride with you on your motorcycle, scooter, sidecar outfiit or trike; email me, and I'll send you the necessary form. If you decide to “escort” the day of the ride and there are still escorts needed, the form will be available that day. Most importantly:

(4) You presence and participation will be most appreciated on the "Ride4Kids", itself. Remember, there are 3 ways to have your sponsorships count. 1st: Any amounts you raise will count toward premiums (gifts) for you, 2nd: The amounts you raise can go toward the recognition of your favorite dealership and 3rd: The totals you raise will count toward your club participation award by the "Ride4Kids" organization. Remember to register for all three criteria! There are 5 BMW dealers that have supported the event by displaying RidePackets for the event, and in some cases, organizing rides to the event, itself. The supporting BMW dealers are: A&S in Roseville (Thanks, Ted), Cycle Specialties in Modesto, Marin BMW in San Rafael, San Jose BMW and San Francisco BMW.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. the day of the event, and the police lead ride will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. If I don't see you at one of the pre-event meetings, I hope to see you at the "Ride4Kids" on June 24th. As we get closer to the ride, those interested in doing so might enjoy organizing a ride to the venue.

Ride with Pride,

I made a mistake! The "Ride4Kids" is on SUNDAY not Saturday, as described in the initial posting.

Thanks...
