October 4 was the perfect day for a leisurely 25, 50 or 100 mile bike ride around southeastern Massachusetts. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and there was a hint of fall in the air that mixed nicely with the excitement of Team Big Sister as they geared up for this year’s Rodman Ride for Kids.
Of the 30 people who raised money for Team Big Sister this year, totaling nearly $30,000 so far (donations can still be made up through November 2, 2008. Click here if you would like to contribute.), 13 of them strapped on their helmets last weekend and went the extra mile(s!) for Big Sister. One rider even took on the 100 mile course! Tamara Grubbs not only rode 100 miles for our team, and raised $1,000, she has also given her time as a Big Sister for three and half years! Her Little Sister Jazmyne, 13, must be very proud!
Big thanks to Team Big Sister chair Steve Kraus, those who donated to our team, and all those who raised money and rode for Big Sister this year!
