Brittney was a well liked and vibrant member of our community. She passed away 16 years ago shortly after her 18th birthday, and only 4 months after being diagnosed with an inoperable cancerous brain tumor. Brittney inspired everyone who knew her or came in contact with her. She was loving, caring and exhibited tremendous strength.
As Dayle (Brittney’s Mother) slowly got her world back into focus, she met a wonderful man who would become a very important part of her life. Ironically, it had always been a dream of Dayle’s to ride on the back of a Harley. When she met Dan, a Harley rider, she had no idea just how much she would become involved with the motorcycle community. In fact, it was Dan, now her new husband, who suggested organizing a yearly fund-raising event in Brittney’s honor to raise money for cancer research. Dayle loved the idea, and so the Brittney Mallory Ride was born. Every year, the Annual Brittney Mallory Ride is held to honor Brittney’s birthday.
When asked about the time and effort this kind of event requires, the emotion in Dayle’s voice is apparent. “That’s what sustains me—all of the positive impact this fundraiser has for other parents of cancer-affected children.”
All proceeds from the event go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in an effort to find a cure, and aid other children in need of care. So far we have raised just over $505,921,.99.
What is the Brittney Ride Event?
The Brittney Ride Event is a opportunity for all motorcycle enthusiasts to ride, donate, reflect, and participate with one another in the long ride we call Life. The event includes live and silent auctions, 50/50 raffles, BBQ, live concerts, and much more. All proceeds from the event go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in an effort to find a cure, and aid other children in need of care.
Please help Brittney’s family and friends with the fight to find a cure. You can help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital find the cure and give doctors the capability to give every family a victorious and happy ending!
