DescriptionSams Jam is the signature event produced by Riders for the Cure. Sams Jam celebrates the life and work of our co-founding member Dr. Samuel Hassenbusch, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Sam, as he was known, was a world-renowned neurosurgeon and researcher who lost his battle with glioblastoma multiforme in 2008. Sams Jam honors his spirit, his vitality and most of all, his commitment to patient care and research.

Sams Jam features a police-escorted ride to a local venue featuring live music, unique vendors, and entertainment. Our 2008, 2009, and 2010 rides have attracted hundreds of riders and raised nearly $50,000 in donations.

The 2011 proceeds will be donated to MD Anderson to assist in leading the largest genetic study ever attempted. Dr. Melissa Bondy is the Lead Investigator on The Gliogene Study, a worldwide study looking at inherited brain tumors. This study will recruit over 6000 glioma patients and controls in hope of identifying genetic and environmental risk factors for glioma.
