Sam's Jam V

Sam's Jam V is the signature motorcycle ride produced by MD Anderson's official employee motorcycle group, Riders For the Cure. Our rides raise thousands of dollars for cancer research at MD Anderson and we have almost zero administrative expenses.  We are not professional fundraisers, but employees from all parts of the institution who love what we do and feel that it's important to make as much progress as we can in the fight against cancer.

This year's event funds a research study that focuses on pediatric brain tumors. The goal of the study is to determine how much radiation can safely be administered to pediatric patients for whom a cure has not yet been discovered.

We invite you to join us in this most noble mission by coming out and riding with us!

    I think less experienced riders should stay toward the back of the pack. I was definately behind a new rider. The escort and the road guards did a great Job.. Thanks goes out to them all.

    The plan is to depart from Stubb's at 11 AM, or is the time to arrive for the ride?

      I wanted to go, but since I will be the only one there on a scooter (Piaggo X9 500cc) among all the high powered motorcycles, I don't want to be outclassed!

    Hi Alan! We will leave around 10:30 am. Coffee and doughnuts for those who come out early!

    I have a 250 and I'm just learning. Would like to go but don't think it will go on the highway.

      Hi Caroline......we do not exceed the speed limit on our rides so your bike will be fine if you are comfy riding 60 MPH. We can put you near the rear of the pack which will also help. We will have staff on hand who can help in the positioning. Thanks!

      Caroline your not going to be the only one. If you don't come you will miss on a lot of fun. Bring your 250 and get ready to have fun. You can start looking for someone to buy you bike so you can get something bigger.

    Is my Piaggio X9 Evolution 500 cc scooter ok?

    September 17, 2012

    • Leslie (.

      Absolutely! Any ride (two or three wheels) that can handle highway speeds are welcomed. In past rides we had Honda Silverwings, Can-Am Spyders, and custom trikes. Look forward to seeing you!
