The Deals Gap Motorcycle is going to be the keystone event for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® Ride for Kids® for 2017. We hope you join us for a destination ride, as well as activities at the resort afterward. Join the cause! Help the kids! Cure the kids!

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® is a nonprofit that funds research for childhood brain tumors. This foundation was created by Ride for Kids®, which is a motorcycle charity that supports the foundation through motorcycle events, that in turn helps provide family support programs and medical research.

We will give the top individual rider who raises $3000 or more a 3-day private ride in the area with the owner of Deals Gap. Top team of over $5,000 raised will earn a free 3-day stay for the team (up to 14 people) at Deals Gap Resort.
  2. Show up at Deals Gap the day of the event and participate in the event by donating at the lunch, bidding of silent auction items, or giving directly to the Foundation.
