Thank you for supporting Ride for a Reason 2017. This will be my 6th year (Lesli's 7th!) riding this great event! Your support last year propelled me to the top 5 fundraisers. Let's do this again - I'll do the hard part!

RIDE FOR A REASON is our annual 112 mile bike ride from Oakland to Sacramento to advocate for public education, and raise essential funds for school enrichment programs in Oakland. We ride to the steps of the State Capitol to advocate for greater funding for education. 

Many elective classes and enrichment programs depend entirely on community fundraising. But community fundraising alone can’t do the deep work needed to fully support all schools. That’s why we ride to Sacramento — to bring attention to underfunded schools.

The funds we raise will be split evenly between Edna Brewer Middle School, Claremont Middle, Oakland Technical High, Emerson Elementary, Westlake Middle School, Oakland International High and our new "family member", Roosevelt Middle School.
 

Your donation is greatly appreciated!
