Raising A Reader MA

Parent Engagement for Early Literacy

About Raising A Reader MA

Our goal is to close the literacy opportunity gap among children ages birth to age six in under-resourced communities by helping families develop and practice shared home reading habits. Our vision is to make interactive reading a joyful and rewarding routine for all families. We equip parents to be their child’s first teacher, empowered to be active participants in their child’s education, impacting success in school and beyond.

About The Rodman Ride For Kids

The Rodman Ride for Kids partners with 40+ youth-focused organizations to raise funds for their programs and engage in collaborative opportunities. The Rodman Ride for Kids is an all-day cycling event in which riders choose to complete a 25 or 50 mile non-competitive route through southeastern Massachusetts to raise money for at-risk children.  There is also a virtual category as well. The Rodman Ride for Kids has raised $150 million for youth-focused non-profits and continues to impact tens of thousands of kids each year.  It is a great opportunity to raise awareness and critical funds for RAR-MA!

We are encouraging people to try the “Choose Your Own Adventure” and create activities that best suit your physical and time needs. 

Participants who choose their own adventure can get as creative as possible!  

You could swim, hike, dance, golf, read, sing - you name it, if you can commit to a goal and work to raise funds in support of it, your adventure can help the cause. 


We Need Your Help!

Please consider either signing up to be a rider/fundraiser or donating generously. All funds raised through the Rodman Ride will go to support our important work to close the early literacy opportunity gap. Please consider these figures from our research:

Every dollar goes towards providing resources for early learners, every dollar counts.
