The Rodman Ride

Raise Money for CCAB by Joining the Virtual Rodman Ride for Kids!

Each year, Catholic Charities of Boston comes together for the Rodman Ride for Kids, a cycling event that raises crucial funds for youth-focused social service organizations in Massachusetts, including CCAB. Due to COVID-19, this year’s ride is moving to a virtual format so we can all remain safe while continuing to be a part of this fun event. 

The Rodman Ride has grown from 30 riders and $30,000 raised when it began 30 years ago, to a model that now includes 45+ Affiliate Charities and over $146 million raised. Proceeds from the Ride impact tens of thousands of at-risk-youth each year. 

Don Rodman, who founded and owned Rodman Ford Sales in Foxborough, devoted the last few decades of his life to supporting kids. He was a friend, champion and Trustee-Emeritus of Catholic Charities of Boston. 

We’re calling on you to join us for the virtual fundraising ride this year. Don’t have a bike? No problem. We invite you to walk, run, swim, jump… We’re turning miles into money and your commitment to any physical activity of your choice will help us reach our goal. 

This year, CCAB has a goal of recruiting 50 participants joining us and each raising $500. That money will go directly to our own valuable programming.
