Rodman Ride for Kids

Rodman Ride for Kids 

September 22, 2018

Each year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/ Metrowest teams up with the Rodman Ride for Kids for a bike riding event in Foxboro, MA. In 2018, we were represented by 9 teams, over 100 participants, and raised over $120,000. The Rodman Ride for Kids is our largest fundraiser and it is successful year after year because of supporters like YOU who ride, fundraise, donate and volunteer. THANK YOU to everyone who got involved and made the event a success. If you are interested in getting involved with the Rodman Ride for Kids in 2019, please email Jackie

About the Rodman Ride for Kids
The Ride is an umbrella-matching gift charity raising funds for over 50 social service agencies supporting at-risk and underserved youth in Massachusetts. The affiliated agencies fundraise year-round, culminating with the Ride each fall. Affiliated agencies like us raise funds through corporate sponsorships and ridership. In turn, the Ride matches those funds at 3%. The expenses associated with the Ride for Kids are less than 3% of the total revenue, and they are underwritten by Rodman Ford. This means that when you donate to the Rodman Ride for Kids on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/ Metrowest, every single dollar of your donation, plus 3%, will directly benefit our programs and the children we serve!

Thank you to our Teams and Sponsors!


This year we have a convenient resource center for Rodman Ride team captains and riders!
