Thousands of riders took nearly 10,000 trips for their cause of choice for a total of over $19,500 donated to our partners!

Finally, the charity with the most rides received an additional $10,000 from Uber DC. Yesterday, we were thrilled to present SOME with a donation totaling $14,682. The funds raised through Ride for a Cause will be used to provide nutritious meals to formerly homeless children in SOME’s after-school programs. These programs provide tutoring, homework help, and enrichment opportunities for youth living in SOME’s affordable housing for families.

Thanks to our riders for all of their support!
