Rodman Ride for Kids
About the Rodman Ride for Kids
The Rodman Ride for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth focused social-service agencies that support at-risk children in Massachusetts.
The Ride for Kids and its affiliated charities fundraise year-round, culminating with The Ride event, a 25, 50, and 100-mile noncompetitive cycling tour, each fall. Our mission is to have every kid in our community live as we would want our own kids to live.
Affiliated charities raise funds through corporate sponsorship, foundations, individual donors and ridership. In turn, the Ride matches those funds at a rate of 10% when the agencies meet their predetermined fundraising goal.
The expenses associated with the Ride for Kids are less than 3% of the total revenue, and they are all underwritten. When you donate to the Ride for Kids,100% of your donation will directly benefit at-risk kids!
The Ride for Kids is the #1 single-day athletic fundraiser in the nation solely supporting at-risk kids.
The Ride for Kids has also grown to include other initiatives aimed at enriching the lives of at- risk kids. These initiatives are funded through separate fundraising, and include Celebration for Kids, the Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids, the Ride for Kids relies on the generous support of more than 500 sponsors to help support vital children’s services in Massachusetts.
