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!

    What a great cause! Too bad public schools need to rely on bicycle rides to get anything close to the funding they need....
