Goal $500.00


Thank you so much for supporting my students at Life Academy! As many of you know, I teach one AP Computer Science class at Life. It is amazing school. The students of Life are incredble young people and your funds provide them with access to experiences, supplies, and support that they otherwise would not receive. It truly makes a difference.

On a personal note, this ride is *very* long for me and your support will give me that extra motivation & boost I need to make it to Sac.

Hugs, Claire 


Thank you for supporting Ride for a Reason 2019.

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, Roosevelt Middle School, Skyline High School and the newest members of our school community - Life Academy and Montera Middle School!

Your donation is greatly appreciated!
