I am riding on Team YES to support Youth Enrichment Services (YES) in the Rodman Ride for Kids because it's important that every young person has access to the programs, resources, and opportunities they need to dream, grow, and succeed.
Our kids were part of the YES Track program since 2008 and later also participated in the Snow sports program. YES was a big part of Henry, Martin and Jane's childhood and we all have fond memories of Moakley Park races, Boylston Street relays and Sunday Ski days at Pat's Peak. More than half of YES kids are from Dorchester, Roxbury, Jamaica Plain and Mattapan and most live in low and moderate income households.
YES is more than outdoor adventure and also provides kids with the tools they need to gain leadership skills, prepare for college and explore career pathways. Martin Richard Foundation is proud to call YES a legacy partner and the Richard family are forever fans of this organization which was originally founded in 1968 by the late Richard Williams with the simple premise: Give Youth A Chance.
Please support my bike ride on September 24th as I hit the road with Team YES.
