On Sunday, July 15, 2001, the annual Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Ride For Kids was held at the Allstate Insurance complex in Northbrook, Illinois. AGWA Illinois had a large number of member volunteers that donated their time to help make this annual event an overwhelming success. Members helped park, greet, register and pass out premiums to the several thousand participants of this event, that was once again blessed with near perfect weather.
The 50 mile ride left promptly at 9:30AM and wound its way through many of Chicago's picturesque Northern suburbs. The line of bikes was so long, it took 22 minutes for all of them to pass!
This year's event raised over $240,000 for this worthy cause - a new record for the Illinois event.
Thanks to all who helped & please come out to support
this event next year!
