Rodman For Kids

Jett Foundation is proud to be an affiliate agency of Rodman for Kids. Along with 50 other nonprofit agencies that share a mission of helping underserved kids in the Greater Boston area, Jett Foundation’s Go! for Duchenne team participates annually in the Rodman Bike Ride.

More About The Ride

When: 2023 Date Coming Soon
Where: Foxborough, MA
Fundraising Commitment: $500

Riders have the option of cycling 25 miles, 50 miles, or becoming a Virtual Rider.

The Rodman Ride is the #1 single-day athletic fundraiser in the nation supporting at-risk kids and all expenses for the event are underwritten. This means that 100% of funds raised by our riders go directly to supporting our young people and families.

Rodman for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social service organizations that support at-risk kids in Massachusetts. Rodman’s mission is to have every child in our community live as we would want our own kids to live. Jett Foundation is committed to supporting young people affected by Duchenne by providing education, programs, adaptive equipment and the support needed to live full lives. Partnering with Rodman for Kids enables us to bring together the families and community we serve for an exciting day of cycling and fun while simultaneously supporting the work that we do.

More details on how to join the 2023 Jett Foundation team at Rodman for Kids coming soon!
