29th Annual Rodman Ride for Kids Foxboro, MA Saturday, September 21, 2019
Join the nation’s #1 single-day athletic event supporting kids! Ride 25 or 50 miles, or become a virtual rider, and raise funds to support at-risk kids in your community.
Funds raised will support our 40+ youth-focused Affiliated Charities as we work together toward our collective mission of helping every child in our community live the way we would want our own kids to live.
Since 1991, the Rodman Ride for Kids has raised over $143 million to support at-risk youth. With your support, we will impact the lives of thousands more young people this year.
One for Health (OFH) and TRMiller are participating again this year in the great Rodman Ride for Kids. We plan to raise over $25,000, 100% of which will be donated to OFH and invested directly into OFH wellness programs for kids across the country.
With your help we could reach up to 4,000,000 kids nationally.
We are seeking financial assistance to grow and sustain this program throughout the country. Please join us in teaming with the Boys and Girls Clubs, local businesses and national funding groups in making it a success.
I would love to have others join my team and set a goal to help get their friends to donate as well. There’s plenty of time left….just contact me anytime:

Bruce Campelia, Exec. Director.. As part of the team, my personal goal is $1,500. Since I am not a capable bike rider, instead of riding in the bike event I have again set up some difficult goals for myself in the area of hiking.
Bruce’s Hiking Goals (at age 70): To be attempted prior to the RIDE (Sept 21, 2019) I am including some shots of my hikes to date for your viewing pleasure......many terrific and magnificent spots!
Washington State (during July and August) Mt Si(Cascades) completed -8 miles, 3,150 ft. vertical gain Rattlesnake Mountain (Cascades)completed -10 miles, approx. 3,000 ft. vertical gain Mt. Rose (Olympic Mountain Range) completed -6.5 miles, 3,500 ft. vertical gain – very steep Mailbox Peak(Cascades) -2.5 miles straight up, 5.5 mile return, 4,000 ft. vertical gain - extremely steep Mt. Rainier(active volcano) 14,400 ft summit: This will be 12 mile hike. I'm not planning to attempt the summit but hike as high as possible without the need for technical equipment, and avoiding altitude sickness.
Maine (September 3-5) Baxter Peak - Mt. Katahdin (Knife Edge Trail) (Appalachian Mountains) - 9 miles, 4,000 vertical gain: My hiking will culminate in Maine on the infamous and dangerous Knife Edge Trail where I will try to squeeze out the last vestiges of a fear of heights that I have been slowly overcoming through my recent years of hiking. This will be a big personal challenge for me.
