Sponsorship Opportunities

We invite you to become a sponsor of the RAAM 2023 Dads Honor Ride to raise awareness and resources for fatherhood charities. What the Dads HonorRide accomplishes goes far beyond the numbers. With 24 million children being directly affected by father absence; your support and sponsorship will help us provide awareness and needed resources to educate, inspire, encourage and engage more fathers and father figures in the lives of their children.

RAAM 2023 could not accomplish our mission and raise the needed awareness without the support from individual, corporate and foundation partners. We are currently looking for local and national partners. Would you please review the sponsorship form and affirm your commitment to the community, families and children through a monetary or in-kind contribution?
