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. We have raised over $61 million since 1991. 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. 

Affiliated agencies along with other beneficiaries, raise funds through corporate sponsorships 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. This means that when you donate to the Ride for Kids, every single dollar of your donation will directly benefit at-risk kids!

Why We Ride: BMC’s Pediatric Patients

We ride to support our most vulnerable patients, who at a very young age experience the reality of life’s hardships. At BMC, we nurture our pediatric patients back to health by providing life-changing clinical and social support.
