Founded in 2001 by professional football player Ruben Brown, Rubens Run for Kids was created as a fundraiser to support the Ruben Brown Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation.

In an effort to break through the traditional athlete supported fundraising events, Ruben was so inclined to integrate his life-long love of bikes into something greater to benefit others. To Ruben’s credit, a significant portion of the hands on work required to make the run a success is done by Ruben himself. From a couple hundred riders in its founding year, to a few thousand riders to date, the Ruben Brown Motorcycle Run has become an increasingly popular and well attended event.
