2016 Ride: The 26th Annual Rodman Ride for Kids took place on Saturday, September 24, 2016
in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Nearly 1,500 riders participated in 25, 50, or 100 mile non-competitive cycling tours throughout southeastern Massachusetts. The Boys & Girls Club of Brockton has been involved with the Rodman Ride for Kids since 2012. In the past five years we have raised over $450,000 to support our after-school and summer programming through our partnership with the Ride!
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 agencies' fundraising initiatives occur year-round, and culminate with The Ride cycling event each fall. Affiliated agencies raise funds through corporate sponsorships and the fundraising efforts of individual riders. In turn, the Ride matches those funds at a rate of 6% when the agencies meet their fundraising goal. The Rodman Ride for Kids is the #1 athletic fundraiser in the nation solely supporting at-risk youth and has raised nearly $100 million dollars since its inception!
The Ride for Kids is a signature partnership that offers our donors an amazing return on their investments and the opportunity to participate in the Ride as a culminating event each fall.
