The Rodman Ride for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social service agencies that support at-risk kids in Massachusetts. The Ride for Kids and its affiliated agencies fundraise year-round, culminating with The Ride event, a 25, 50, and 100-mile non-competitive cycling tour, each fall. The expenses associated with the Ride for Kids are less than 3% of the total revenue, and they are all underwritten.This means that when you donate to the School on Wheels through the Rodman Ride for Kids, 100% of your donation will directly benefit at-risk kids!
