The Annual Rodman Ride for Kids will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2017 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Nearly 1,500 riders will participate in 25-50- or 100-mile non-competitive cycling tours throughout southeastern Massachusetts. Crossroads for Kids has been involved with the Rodman Ride for Kids since 2008.
Since becoming an affiliated agency in 2008, we have experienced tremendous success with the Ride model, achieved by helping our board, staff and volunteers reach a fundamental perception shift: the Ride is so much more than just a bike ride event. We view the Ride as a year-round partnership that offers our donors an amazing return on their investments and the opportunity to participate in the Ride as a culminating event.
We view all of our annual events and fundraisers through the lens of our partnership with the Rodman Ride. By leveraging corporate and foundation sponsorships through the Ride, we are not only giving our supporters additional recognition opportunities, but also the opportunity to increase the impact of their initial investment with the 6% match.
Crossroads offers many opportunities for you to participate in our partnership with the Rodman Ride! We have tiered corporate sponsorship opportunities for all of our annual fundraising special events, and of course you can always participate in the Ride itself by creating your own Ride team or by joining Team Crossroads!
For more information about how you can get involved, please contact Kristin O'Sullivan.
Who is the Rodman Ride for Kids?
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 3% 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 more than $93 million dollars since its inception!
