- Bikers for Babies Success Story


 
On a crisp, sunny September morning motorcycle riders and spectators from all across Kansas City gathered at Kansas Speedway for the 2014 edition of the March of Dimes® Bikers for Babies® event. Riders and fundraisers alike enjoyed a pancake breakfast and an array of vendors across the infield. Following the Opening Ceremony, riders departed on a 100-mile scenic route through northeast Kansas, led by Johnny Dare of 98.9 The Rock and Bikers for Babies Honorary Chairman since 1996.
 
Each year in the United States, more than 500,000 babies are born premature.  More that 120,000 others are born with birth defects and many don’t make it to their first birthday. One in eight babies in the Kansas City area are born premature. Over the past 19 years, riders, sponsors and donors have raised nearly $7 million to benefit life saving research and mission programs, making this the largest and most successful March of Dimes ride in the country. Funds raised by Bikers for Babies also support local grants focused on issues related to premature birth and community programs such as NICU Family Support. On this, the 20th Anniversary of one of the biggest Bikers for Babies events in the country, over $800,000 was raised for this very worthy cause.
 
Richardson Communications Group supports this event each year by donating all of the graphic design and assisting in the printing and mailing of the event brochures and posters.
