Dear Name:

On Saturday, September 23rd, 2017, I will be participating in the 27th annual Rodman Ride for Kids . The Ride for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social service organizations that support at-risk kids in Massachusetts. The Ride serves as a catalyst by providing dozens of organizations with the opportunity to raise vital funds through this event. Last year, the Ride raised over $14 million and we hope to exceed that amount this year. The Ride has raised over $122 million since its inception in 1991, and it is the #1 single-day athletic fundraiser for at-risk kids in the nation. 

I have pledged to raise <your pledge amount> for <your affiliate charity> through the Ride and your donation of any amount will help me to reach my goal. I am raising funds to support this cause because…  <tell your personal story>.
If you would like to support <affiliated charity> through the Ride for Kids, please visit my fundraising page <link.>  
 
The Ride offers exceptional value for your donation.  100% of all expenses are underwritten and the Ride even provides a match on your gift!  Every dollar you donate, and then some, will go to <affiliated charity> when you donate.
 
If you have any questions about the Ride for Kids, please feel free to give me a call, or call the Ride office at 1.800.395.RIDE. Thank you for joining me to help the Ride for Kids with their mission of helping every kid in our community live as we would want our own kids to live.

Sincerely,
<Your Name>
