Ride for a Reason 2018
Please note: donations are not being accepted by this participant at this time.

Goal $1,001.00


One more year of Riding for a Reason... a really great reason, to get some very deserving Oakland Public Schools some final resources for the 2018 year.  Your contributions big and small all go directly into the hands of educators who know exactly what students can benefit from at the end of the year when budgets are empty.  Thanks for supporting me and the Oakland schools!

Best Wishes,

Paul Barton



RIDE FOR A REASON is our annual 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 Roosevelt Middle School.
