Ride For Reading's mission is help children in low-income areas become healthy and literate. We do this through the distribution of books via bicycle! In low-income neighborhoods, the ratio of books per child is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children. *Reading is an integral part of education, and without books it is hard to build a strong academic base. Our children need materials to read at home and it is our goal to provide the means.
