Get the kids' bikes and trikes out for the 6th annual Ryan Phua Memorial Kids' Ride, which I've heard is a lot of fun. The story behind the ride is sad (i.e. 2 year old dies of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood), but out of sadness came a fundraiser for local Bay Area cancer survivorship programs and an event that brings community the together .
Three categories of peddlers ranging from ages under 4, to 9-12. Ha - can you guess the third category? Kid riders will do a hundred meters to a few laps, and win medals, ribbons and ice cream. And after the big finish: entertainment!
Even if you never met Ryan (I didn't), you can still celebrate the boy's spirit and help raise funds for a good cause. For more on Ryan's Ride, click here.
