Ride for Kids to Benefit At-Risk Youth Program


The Rodman Ride for Kids will take place in Foxboro on September 29 to benefit the John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation for at-risk youth. The ride can be completed in increments of 25, 50 or 100 miles, with varying start times, and features a celebratory party afterward.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Mazie Mentoring Program, which matches Framingham High School students with mentors to help them to stay in school, improve grades, explore secondary education and make plans for the future.

“This small group of dedicated employees and mentors at the Mazie Mentoring Program has had a profound effect on every student they have reached,” says Gary Krackoff, Ride for Kids co-organizer. “For the past 14 years, almost every participating student has graduated from Framingham High and gone on to some post-secondary education. The program is even expanding to Waltham High School.”

For more information, including how to sponsor or participate in the ride, become a mentor or make a donation, call 508-358-0765, email Lauren Kracoff at [email protected] or visit
