On Saturday, September 21, Raising A Reader MA (RAR-MA) participated in the Rodman Ride for Kids. With a team of 15 riders, RAR-MA raised over $16,000 to support its mission to end the cycle of low literacy. It was a perfect day for a bike ride and for a celebration.

And there’s still time to donate! Help us keep the momentum going and donate to the team here. The portal is open until November 15th.

“The energy was incredible. We are so fortunate to have such a great group of people supporting Raising A Reader MA and riding. We couldn’t have asked for a better day,” said RAR-MA Development Manager and rider, Bridget Malicki.

This year’s ride was particularly special as Don Rodman, Boston area philanthropist, ride founder and business owner passed away before the start of his 29th annual Rodman Ride for Kids. Raising A Reader MA is so grateful for the immense support of the Rodman for Kids foundation and the incredible network of organizations he created to serve at-risk youth in Greater Boston.
