Thank you for supporting Ride for a Reason 2019!

On April 27, Toby, Beth and Tom will depart from Oakland Tech at first light, and with some luck, and a lot of pedaling, hope to arrive in Sacramento around 3:30 p.m, spurred on by the fabulous volunteers and their recharging stations along the way.

RIDE FOR A REASON is the 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!
