Join our Rodman Ride for Kids Virtual Team

The 30th Annual Rodman Ride for Kids Event

In its 30th year, the Rodman Ride for Kids has raised millions to support at-risk teens in our communities. The MetroWest YMCA is excited to partner with the ride again so youth in our community have access to educational programs, healthy meals, and opportunities to build their career aspirations and goals.

While this year the ride will look different, what won't be different is the impact you make when you join us for the virtual ride. 

What does a virtual ride mean? It means you can pick how you want to tackle the "ride." When you register you can pick:

Ride your road bike:

  • 25 miles on a route of your choice
  • 50 miles on a route of your choice

OR pick your own adventure! Walk, swim, hike, or pick another of your favorite activities, set a goal (it can be minutes, hours, miles, number of days) and then share with your family and friends. Challenge them to sponsor you for all or some of your activity. 

Need another idea for an adventure? On September 19, at the Framingham Branch join a 2-hour, outdoor, spin class. Contact Amy Miller for more information.

And if at least 25 participants register by July 31, our Y qualifies for an additional $5,000 to support at-risk teens! 


Just select register as an individual and then choose your adventure. 

Also, while this is a fun event, it is also a fundraiser for the Y’s programs that help at-risk teens in your community. As if supporting at-risk youth isn’t incentive enough, Rodman is offering the following:
