Become a Virtual Rider and help make a difference for over ¼ million Massachusetts kids without ever getting on a bicycle! A Virtual Rider is anyone who is passionate about the Rodman Ride for Kids mission to help every kid live as we would want our own kids to live, but who will not be cycling on Ride Day. Virtual Riders who raise at least $500 will receive a Rodman Ride for Kids 25th Anniversary shirt.
“But how will I get my friends and family to donate if I’m not riding?” That’s where your creativity comes in! While you don’t need to participate in an activity to be a Virtual Rider, those who connect their fundraising with a tangible activity have the most success and the most fun. Here are some of our favorite ideas to get your wheels turning:
