Looks for a great company team building event? Please consider putting together a company team for the 2010 Rodman Ride for Kids of behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters Mass Bay (BBBSMB). This will be my 10th year doing the ride, and it’s a really fun day for companies and families to participate in. No out of pocket commitment is necessary, we just need you to encourage participation by employees and provide an internal point person who can help recruit riders.
The Rodman Ride is a great event held every year in Foxboro, MA with over 1,500 riders helping to raise money for 25 children’s charities and free post- party BBQ at the finish line that’s sponsored by local restaurants and breweries. Last year, BBBSMB had nearly 90 riders made up of company teams, corporate partners, Bigs and Little’s, staff, and family and friends. There are three courses to choose from for any ability that all begin and end in Foxboro- 25-miles, 50 miles and 100 miles. Starting times are set so that all courses finish together at the same time. There is no minimum fundraising goal and riders have BBBSMB development staff and event planners by their side to help them along the way. Based on past ride data, a team of 10 riders would likely raise $10,000 and 25 riders would likely raise $25,000, which would all go directly to the agency with a 15% match as there is no overhead.
We have put together a very simple one page overview that describes the benefits and process and some of the prizes that can be won and marketing benefits. Please contact myself or Molly Neville to set up an onsite info session and she can coordinate with someone from your company to get the team together and help them with fundraising. Riders can also sign up directly online.
