The Rodman Ride is a cycling event for amateur and professional riders. The event is an impressive sight of more than 1,200 riders and hundreds of volunteers who come together to make a difference for thousands of children in New England. Members who join Starlight’s team set a goal to ride 25, 50 or 100 miles, and get to work throughout the summer and early fall to train and raise critical monies for our programs. Every dollar raised is matched by The Ride -- stretching each donation to make an even greater differenceTo learn more, click here.

This month...

Starlight New England’s 5th Annual STARmazing Race scavenger hunt on June 25 was a
blast! Racers took to the streets of Boston to hunt for clues while raising funds and awareness for seriously ill children. Teams enjoyed Mango Tangos at Qdoba Mexican Grill, blind taste tests at J.P. Licks and a host of other athletic and mental challenges. Click here to see event photos.

That same weekend, we accompanied 77 Starlight children and family members to a Wild West Rodeo, where everyone enjoyed a full day of good old-fashioned cowboy and western sports and games, some sweet-and-friendly ponies, hay rides, a yummy lunch by Qdoba and themed arts and crafts.
