“A big Ride for Kids thank-you goes out to Kevin Schwantz and Lyle Lovett,” said Kyle Clack, national director of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Ride for Kids. “To have two such well-known motorcyclists, each a ‘world champion’ in their profession, get together to make a real difference in children’s lives is truly a championship event!”

An avid motorcyclist who has supported Ride for Kids since it came to Houston 20 years ago, Lovett has recorded several PSAs for the foundation.

Schwantz is also a major fan. Last year while managing American Honda’s Moto2 effort to benefit the PBTF, he took time to lead the Ride for Kids Lap of Champions at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The spot was filmed last month at Northwest Honda in Houston, with help from Love Advertising and Understand, Inc. It also stars a young brain tumor survivor named Garrett. Each day, 10 more children like him are diagnosed with a brain tumor, the deadliest form of childhood cancer.

Motorcyclists like Lovett and Schwantz are helping the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation change these children’s lives for the better. Ride for Kids events take place in 40 cities this year, starting April 3 in Deerfield Beach, Fla.

Ride for Kids® supports the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® (PBTF) by funding medical research and family support programs. Learn more about the PBTF Ride for Kids® at www.rideforkids.org.

Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. is honoring the golden anniversary of its iconic Jet Ski personal watercraft (PWC) products with the 50 years of exhilaration celebration.

When the original Jet Ski watercraft debuted in 1973, it created a whole new lifestyle of having fun on the water. What began with a liquid-cooled, 400cc two-stroke twin engine; pivoting handlepole system; and ability to slice turns and skim over waves has evolved to a supercharged, 1,498cc inline four-stroke marine engine. Despite the technological evolutions, the soul of a Jet Ski remains recreating the feeling of riding a motorcycle on the water.
