About the Ride for Ryther
Now in its third year, the Ride for Ryther has grown to a team of 11 including 6 Ryther staff members, John Gonzales, Siri Gillespie, Robin Bennett, Becky Hutton, Marbie Descatamiento and Colin Powers, and some community supporters. The team will be cycling the 202 miles from Seattle to Portland July 12-13 to raise awareness and funds to support Ryther's programs.
This year, donations made to Ride for Ryther will go towards Specific Assistance, a fund that provides specific activities and items for the children in our Sub Acute Residential Treatment Program:
- $50 would purchase new outfits for a child's adoption photo shoot
- $100 would provide therapeutic yoga classes for all children for one month
- $250 would allow five kids to attend a week-long summer camp of their choice
Ryther is a leader in behavioral health services for children, teens and youth - some of the most vulnerable in Washington state. Those they serve have often been affected by abuse, neglect, mental illness, addiction or trauma.
Ryther is dedicated to providing comprehensive services and innovative treatments so that every child and family they work with may experience new ways of thinking, develop positive relationships and realize a better life.
The team is riding as part of the large Group Health STP ride: http://www.cascade.org/ride-major-rides/group-health-stp
