Ride to Give is a 501c3 (tax ID 46-2952297) non-profit charity with the mission of turning athletic ability into fundraising power for families with children who are disabled, injured, or ill. Based in Jefferson, GA, an hour outside of Atlanta, RTG was founded by Kaete Nazaroff and her husband, fifteen-time Ironman Dave Nazaroff. In the summer of 2013 Dave completed the first annual Ride, a solo cycling journey from Nyack, NY, their former home, to Atlanta (over 900 miles by bicycle) in 5 days to raise awareness and donations for the family of Tripp Halstead (Tripp Halstead Updates), a toddler who suffered a traumatic brain injury in fall of 2012.

Over the past three and a half years we have helped almost 100 families and raised close to 2 million dollars in support of the children who need us most. We have made a real difference, but there is a limit to what we can do. Since we began in the spring of 2013, we have received thousands of requests asking for our assistance. As the New Year approaches, we are recommitting ourselves to helping as many families as we can but to do this, we need your continued support and generosity.  

During this time of year-end giving, Ride to Give is launching our first annual YEAR END FUNDRAISER. Our goal over the coming days is to get 33% of the Ride to Give  Army to committing to a monthly tax-deductible donation. Currently, have we have 107,727 followers on Facebook so our goal is for 35,550 members of the RTGA to register as monthly donors, and your donation can be anything from $2 upward.  When you donate and commit to a monthly reoccurring donation during the next 12 days, you will join a small but dedicated group and become a founding member of the “RTG 33%.” 

When you make your donation, you must check the box under your contribution amount to indicate you will contribute this amount monthly. This will make the amount you donate a monthly reoccurring donation. 

Our motto is “Give a little, Change a lot.” A monthly commitment, even as seemingly small like $2, will change the lives of children who need specialized medical equipment, service dogs, special needs transportation, and other out of pocket costs related to having a medically fragile child. Sadly, there is a huge need for groups like Ride to Give because so many “necessities” are not covered by insurance, but we cannot do what we do without the continued generosity of the RTGA.

Please help us build a stronger financial base so we can reach the goals for our featured cause faster, increase the number of children we are able to support annually and continue to help children behind the scenes without an official fundraiser. It is very simple… if 35,550 members of the RTGA donate just $2 every month that is $71,100 ever four weeks. By this time next year, we will have raised an impressive $853,200! 

Just think how many families that would support?
