This past Saturday, the Rocket cycling team took part in the Rodman Ride for Kids, an annual 25, 50, and 100-mile noncompetitive cycling tour that helps raise money for youth-focused social-service organizations that support at-risk children in Massachusetts.
This is the 25th anniversary of the Rodman Ride, which provides beautiful symmetry for Rocket’s 25th anniversary! Team Rocket rode to raise money for Boston Medical Center and for Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, organizations that my wife Mariann and I are actively involved with.
It was the perfect day for a ride; the weather was beautiful, and the course was both challenging and fun. Most of the team participated in the 50-mile ride, and one team member even finished third in the 100-mile ride!
Everyone who rode had a great time, and it’s always a great day when you can enjoy the great outdoors and support some great causes at the same time. And even though it’s a year away, we’re all excited about 2016—our plan is to triple the number of Rocketeers taking part.
