Across Massachusetts, over 3,000 youth are on the wait list to be matched with a mentor to help them reach their full potential. For over ten years, Mass Mentoring Partnership has joined the Rodman Ride for Kids - a day-long, non-competitive cycling tour - to help raise funds to support our mission to expand access to empowering relationships and connect these youth to caring adults across the state.
This year marks the 29th annual Ride, which will be held on Saturday, September 21st. The Ride supports more than 250,000 kids each year through 52 affiliated organizations. Since its inception in 1991, the Rodman Ride for Kids has raised more than $122 million, and every dollar they have raised has gone directly to support young people. Team MMP has proudly been participating in the Rodman Ride for Kids since 2004. Over those years, our riders have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars that went to directly to helping create more empowering youth-adult relationships across Massachusetts.
You can help us carry out our mission by riding with Team MMP or by making a donation. Through a generous 3% match, 103% of the funds we raise for Ride Day go towards connecting youth to supportive role models.
