Our Mission: To help children in low-income areas become healthy and literate.
Our Vision : A World Where Every Child is Healthy and Literate.
Research Shows that only 1 in 300 children in poverty have age appropriate books - it is our drive, our cause, to end that cycle.
Ride for Reading is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that works to promote literacy and healthy-living by collecting, then donating age-appropriate books via bicycle to children at Title 1 Schools or Community Centers in low-income communities.
Since 2008, Ride for Reading has donated over 500,000 books, mobilized over 15,000 volunteers, and visited over 300 schools in over 50 cities nationwide. We believe that education is not only found within the four walls of a school building. Within the pages of a book you can go anywhere, see anything, and experience everything. Every child deserves that despite economic status.
