The motorcycle division of GEICO Powersports has renewed its multiyear commitment as the exclusive national insurance sponsor of Ride for Kids, benefiting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

“We really appreciate all of the tremendous work that Ride for Kids does to fight one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer,” says GEICO Powersports Director Tom Garner. “We’ve seen firsthand how Ride for Kids events help support children and parents. It’s a world-class program that’s warm, caring, family oriented, professional, and safety conscious, and GEICO is proud to be a part of their team.”

GEICO first joined Ride for Kids in 2010. The alliance is a good fit for many reasons, says the program’s national director, Kyle Clack.

“Not only is GEICO a customer-focused company with a passion for helping the community, they are also the preferred insurance partner of our presenting sponsor, Honda, and sponsors of the GEICO Honda Supercross/Motocross team. We know that both of these organizations share our drive and determination to cure childhood brain tumors.”
