Rodman Ride for Kids, SOWMA

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!

The Rodman Ride For Kids


The 2016 Ride 


Team SOWMA had a spectacular day joining 1,000 riders under sunny blue skies as part of the 26th Annual Rodman Ride for Kids in Foxboro, MA on Saturday, September 24th.

We are so grateful to Team SOWMA and our volunteers who continue to make a difference for our kids!  The 50-mile bikers included our devoted Risk Strategies Team Members Michael Christian and Ed Marshall.  Also cycling 50 miles were Robin and Andrew Daniels and Sarik Goyal.  The 25-mile Risk Strategies SOWMA team included Zoe Hellwig, Carley and Shawn Berry and Valerie Marshall.  Special shoutout to Neal and Russell Opper and SOWMA board member Dennis Harkins, who rode 25 miles for the 9th consecutive year!  Virtual riders included Angela Geso, Robin Gilbert, Jennifer Knowlton-Randall, Kelly Miranda, Cheryl Opper, Sharon Beals and Lauren Hanson. 

The Rodman Ride for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity that raises funds for youth-focused social service organizations like SOWMA that support at-risk kids in Massachusetts. The Ride's mission is to have every child in our community live as we would want our own children to live. The Rodman Ride for Kids will top the funds we raise with a 5% match.

This year SOWMA's goal is to reach $210,000 for our kids and it's not too late to help! Help us reach our goal by donating to Team SOWMA by November 30th!
