Team Boston Partners had another great showing at the 2018 Rodman Ride for Kids, an annual biking event that helps many nonprofit organizations raise money to help underserved and at-risk children throughout the commonwealth. Riders may choose to ride a non-competitive 25, 50, or 100 miles to raise money for the nonprofit of their choice.
Seven riders represented Team Boston Partners in Foxborough on Saturday, September 22, volunteering their time and energy to raise money in support of our goal to serve more students in the Boston Public Schools. Benadette Manning, Sue Li, Emily Gordon, Peter Darling, Laura Koepnick, and former Executive Director Pamela Civins all rode 25 miles in support of BPS students.
Taking a true leadership role in the event, Board Chair Mike McKenna rode 50 miles for Team Boston Partners, personally raising over $3,500 in the process. Several more supporters volunteered as virtual riders, and altogether we raised over $8,500. We’re so grateful for our dedicated team of riders and all who cheered them on with words of encouragement and donations along the way. Thank you for supporting youth mentoring in the Boston Public Schools!
The race may be over, but there’s still time to give! If you’d like to support our mentoring programs through a Rodman Ride contribution, your gift will be matched in part by our friends at Mass Mentoring Partnership through November 30th. Simply make your donation through our team page here.
The Rodman Ride, currently in its 28th year, supports hundreds of nonprofit organizations in their fundraising efforts. Over 1000 riders take part in the event every year.
