Ride for a Reason 2020

Goal $2,000.00


I have committed to ride from Alameda to the steps of the State Capitol on April 25th to bring attention to underfunded public schools and advocate for greater funding for education.  RIDE FOR A REASON is an annual bike ride to Sacramento to raise essential funds for public school enrichment programs.

The heroes who teach in our public schools are some of the lowest paid in the state.  Despite this, they work tirelessly to give our children the education they deserve, and they need our support.  I am a product of a public school education and we've committed to giving Olive and Finn the same. The passion and commitment that our public school teachers bring every day is as humbling now as it was when I was growing up.  Unfortunately, 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.  This is why we ride to Sacramento.

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, Roosevelt Middle School, Skyline High School, Life Academy, Montera Middle School, and Oakland Equity Allies, Encinal Junior and Senior High School!  

Any donation is greatly appreciated! Thank you for supporting Ride for a Reason 2020.
