Team Merritt’s Way announces 2015 Rodman Ride for Kids on Saturday, September 26.

Merritt’s Way cyclists from New York, Massachusetts, and Vermont are busy training for their 2nd Annual Rodman Ride for Kids on Saturday, September 26, 2015 and they invite other cyclists to join the team and raise money for a great cause!

Team Merritt’s Way has grown to 15 cyclists this year and has a goal to raise $50,000 during the non-competitive event which offers three RIDES: a 25, 50, or 100-mile cycling tour.

“We are looking forward to a fun day of riding for a great cause,” says Richard Levitan, Team Merritt’s Way Captain. “The Rodman Ride for Kids is a wonderful way to honor our daughter Merritt’s passion for serving at-risk youth as well as her passion for biking.”

Funds raised by Team Merritt’s Way will go to support the Merritt Levitan TEEP Scholars Program through the Trinity Boston Foundation as well as Merritt’s Way initiatives such as TEXTLESS LIVE MORE, a national awareness initiative to combat distracted driving and save lives.

“We’re a super enthusiastic bunch and welcome anyone who wants to join TEAM MERRITT’S WAY,” says Levitan. “Enthusiasm is the only necessary ingredient to be a member – that and a desire to help young people in our community!” 

Team Merritt’s Way welcomes cyclists and donations. Please go to Team Merritt’s Way’s Team Page for The Rodman Ride for Kids 2015 for donations: . . .

Merritt Levitan was an avid cyclist who lost her life in July 2013 to a distracted driver who was texting. Merritt’s Way is a non-profit founded in her honor with a dual mission to end distracted driving and create leadership opportunities for underserved youth. We love you, Merritt.
