Goal $2,500.00


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. 

At Roosevelt, we have used the funds raised through R4R to help our students take numerous field trips. This year, Roosevelt students have or will visit the Exploratorium, the Oakland Ice Rink, local colleges and universities, the Oakland Airport, and the Oakland Museum. In addition, our students have had the opportunity to experience the outdoors through camping and hiking excursions, including a whitewater rafting adventure on the South Fork of the American River, camping in the Presidio, and camping at Salt Point State Park.

R4R funds also help support our athletic program by allowing us to provide basic equipment and uniforms for our sports teams.  

At Roosevelt we work hard to build a strong relationships between students and staff. R4R funds have helped support monthly campus-wide community building activities such as student vs. staff games, community art projects, and student clubs (Gay-Straight Alliance, Girls' Empowerment, Robotics Club, Japanese Culture and Language Club, etc...).

Your donation is greatly appreciated!
