The Rodman Ride for Kids is an all-day cycling event in which riders choose to complete a 25 or 50 mile non-competitive route through southeastern Massachusetts to raise money for at-risk children. This year marks the 29th anniversary of the Ride.
Every September, more than 1,500 cyclists participate in the Ride for Kids, which has raised over $180 million to benefit 50 Massachusetts child-welfare agencies, including Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps.

Ride for Kids Testimonial
I have participated in the Ride For Kids for close to twenty years. During this time I’ve been at four different law firms and have created teams at each of these firms. Having employees participate in the ride is a wonderful and effective team-building exercise. The combination of working together to achieve a goal (fundraising for a worthy cause) while participating in a healthy and fun event (the bike ride) and then having a party afterwards (hosted by some of the beneficiaries of the ride) is a sure-fire recipe for success. The employees who participate (either by riding or by donating) feel closer to one another and better about themselves.
