Bob Henig, owner of Bob’s BMW Motorcycles, raised $106,437 for the charity last year and he wants to beat that mark this year by holding the Ultimate Bike Raffle 2.

The Ride for Kids program supports the efforts of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to find the cause of and the cure for childhood brain tumors. Thousands of motorcyclists participate in Ride for Kids events held across the country each year, increasing public awareness as well as raising much needed funds to support medical research and assist the families affected by this dreadful disease.

Somebody is going to win a brand new BMW S1000RR.

Prizes this year include a brand new BMW S1000RR sport bike, which will be on the market in January 2010.

Other prizes include an Edelweiss Ultimate Alps Tour ($5,000 value), premium riding suits from BMW and Olympia ($1,000 -$2,700 value), and many other great pieces of motorcycle gear. Henig believes these prizes will help him exceed last year’s record, allowing help him to maintain his title as the nation’s biggest fundraiser for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
