Hundreds of motorcyclists revved up their engines on Sunday hoping to speed up the search for a cure for pediatric brain cancer.

They rode fifty miles through St. Joseph County as part of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's Annual Ride for Kids.

Police escorted the bikers, who even took kids who suffer from brain tumors along for the ride.

Each year, the event raises thousands of dollars for the foundation.

Parents are hopeful all that money will help researchers find a cure.

Pediatric brain tumors are one of the most deadly types of childhood cancer.

The event gives kids a chance to meet survivors, which gives them hope.
