Join us for the 27th Annual Rodman Ride for Kids event on Saturday, September 23rd!

We need your help! If you or someone you know can bike 25, 50 or 100 miles, join St. Mary's Center at the 27th Annual Rodman Ride for Kids on Saturday, September 23rd, 2017! All fitness and ability levels are welcome.

The Rodman Ride (The Ride) is the #1 single-day athletic fundraiser in the nation supporting at-risk kids, and it is an incredible opportunity to raise awareness and critical funds for St. Mary’s Center’s life-changing programs and services. Even better 100% of all proceeds go to St. Mary’s Center plus each dollar you raise is matched 3% by the Ride!

We ask that each rider raise a minimum of $1500 to help at-risk children. Each year, St. Mary’s Center partners with 600 women and children to build their emotional well-being, educational achievements, and economic independence. Your participation in the Ride makes this possible.

St. Mary’s Center’s experienced fundraising team will provide you with support along the way. Come eat, meet other riders, and learn more about the Ride and St. Mary’s Center at an upcoming information session.

The Rodman Ride for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social service organizations that support at-risk kids in Massachusetts. The Ride's mission is to have every kid in our community live as we would want our own kids to live.

The Ride serves as a catalyst by providing child welfare charities an opportunity to raise funds through this event. The Ride For Kids and our affiliated charities fundraise year-round, culminating with the Ride event, a 25, 50, or 100-mile non-competitive cycling tour on Saturday, September 23rd.

100% of all expenses associated with the Ride for Kids are less than 2% of the total revenue, and they are all underwritten by Rodman Ford. This means that when you donate to the Ride for Kids, 100% of your donation will directly benefit at-risk kids!
