The Sixth Annual pre-Mother’s Day family and friendly cycling event was held on Saturday, May 13, 2017 and included 10, 35 and 77 mile rides staged out of Johansen High School in Modesto with fully supported rest stops, SAG and lunch. 

RFM is proud to have the support of Doctors Medical Center (DMC) as the presenting sponsor of this year’s event. RFM is so pleased that DMC will be the presenting sponsor of the 2018 event. DMC supports educational and human service projects and is focused on improving our community’s health through the pursuit of wellness. DMC’s significant support assists in continuing the viability of RFM. RFM deeply appreciates DMC’s support. 

Early check-in and a pre-ride social event were held on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Green’s on Tenth located at 953 10th Street, Modesto, CA 95354, a new venue for RFM’s early check-in. It was a blast! 

Over the past five years, over 1,800 riders and 450 volunteers have participated in the event. Including this year, due to the generous  support of sponsors, volunteers and participants, RFM has distributed over $56,000 in grants and bicycles to local beneficiaries that personify “Be Active Eat Healthy Live Better”. 

This year, RFM is supporting Teens Run Modesto, Bi-National Health Fair (El Concilio), the Boys and Girls Club of Stanislaus County, the Tuolumne River Trust and the Society for Disabilities. Each beneficiary has received a grant of $2,500.00. 

The Ride for Mom® event is community based. All of the members of the Organizing Team are volunteers. No salaries are paid. The event is overseen by Ride for Mom, Inc., a California non-profit corporation with IRC 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.

As a result of feedback from our participants, the Organizing Team continues to make adjustments to make the event fun, more efficient and better organized.  Suggestions on improving the event are always appreciated.
