Rodman Ride for Kids: 25th Anniversary Event
Saturday, September 26, 2015
Would you like to be a part of this exciting event? We are gathering Team Wildflower together now and would love to add your name to our list of riders.
The Rodman Ride is a non-competitive ride beginning in Foxboro. Riders choose from 25, 50 and 100 mile routes. For those who would like to be a member of Team Wildflower but aren’t available on ride day, we welcome virtual riders as full members of our team.
The Rodman Ride is an exciting and meaningful event for Wildflower. As an affiliated agency of the ride, all donations received by Team Wildflower receive a 6% Rodman match and Rodman underwrites all expenses related to the ride. That means that all of the money we raise goes directly to support our campers and their families.

The Wildflower Gala
Wednesday, September 9, 2015
Seaport Hotel, Boston
The Wildflower Gala will be an evening like no other. Wildflower supporters will gather at the beautiful Seaport Hotel on Boston’s historic waterfront in support of our mission of helping children and their families after the loss of a parent through the gift of camp.
I am particularly pleased to announce our honorees for the evening.
The Burton Family will be awarded the Wildflower Legacy Award. Paul Burton will be accepting the award on behalf of his family in honor of his dad Ron Burton and his legacy, The Ron Burton Training Village. Paul’s father, a former Patriot running back, founded The Ron Burton Training Village in 1985. The youth camp uses the medium of sports to teach young children how to succeed in life both on and off the field. As camp director, Paul continues his father’s legacy of helping children in need.
The Wildflower Impact Award will be awarded to Bob Strauss for his dedication to the development of young boys as the long-time director of Camp Wigwam. Bob is well known in the camping community as an all-time great camp director. His role as a mentor has a very personal connection to Wildflower. Bob welcomed Wildflower founder Cyndi Jones’s son, Matt Ringelheim, to Camp Wigwam as a camper over 20 years ago and has been Matt’s mentor ever since. His generosity was the impetus for the creation of Wildflower’s mission.
The funds raised by the Wildflower Gala will directly impact the capacity of our organization to continue to grow during our second decade. Our Board is thoughtfully considering several exciting and wonderful initiatives including dramatically increasing the number of children and families we support and expanding the breadth of services we offer the bereaved community. The Gala will make this expansion possible.
If you are interested in learning more about the Gala including sponsor opportunities, please call us at 781 861-1413 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Information about tickets to the Gala will be available soon.
