Riding For Charity: 2019 Iron Pigs Against Pediatric Cancer Ride
Nothing beats cruising on your motorcycle on a beautiful day, except for when you can support a charitable cause in the process! The Iron Pigs Against Pediatric Cancer Ride is an annual charity ride and fundraiser for children’s cancer research. This year’s event is Saturday, May 4, in Orlando. Riders will travel from Nemours Children’s Hospital to Ace Cafe Orlando (both event sponsors), where they’ll be met with live music, great food and drinks, and more!

Meet The Hosts
The charity ride is hosted by the Iron Pigs Motorcycle Club, St. Johns River Chapter. The Iron Pigs Motorcycle Club is a non-profit organization, though not your typical 501(c)3. These members dress not in slacks and ties but Levis and leather vests. Their logo is a snarling pig crunching on a pair of pistons, flames raging in the background. Yet, at the corner of the logo is the insignia “99%er,” a reference to the 1960s motorcycle culture and an American Motorcycle Association (AMA) study that claimed 99 percent of riders are decent, law-abiding people — without a doubt, the charitable Iron Pigs Motorcycle Club make the cut.
The Iron Pigs Motorcycle Club began its charity rides in 2013 after an “Iron Pig brother received news that his sister had been diagnosed with brain cancer.” In 2014, the Club teamed up with Nemours Children’s Hospital for the first Iron Pigs Against Pediatric Cancer Ride, which raised $5,000. Donations have risen steadily since then, and the Club hopes this year’s ride will be its best so far. Our motorcycle lawyers will be there supporting the goal — we hope to see you there, too!
