Ride for a Reason 2019

Goal $1,500.00


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. 

Help me support my neighborhood public schools, Oakland's public schools, and advocate for stronger state funding for public education. The movement continues to grow by partnering with more and more schools. My participating neighborhood schools are Oakland International High, Emerson Elementary, and Oakland Technical High. Also participating are Edna Brewer Middle, Claremont Middle, Westlake Middle, Roosevelt Middle, Skyline High, and two newly participating schools - Life Academy and Montera Middle. The funds we raise are split evenly between all of the schools.

Your donations support key programs that are beyond the means of these schools' regular budgets. They are called "enrichment" activities, but they are really basic programs to cultivate smart, confident, and kind kids. 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.

Thank you for supporting Ride for a Reason 2019!
