Acella Construction Team Raises Almost $13,000 for Rodman Ride for Kids


PEMBROKE, MA–Acella Construction Corporation announced its 18th year participating in the recent Rodman Ride for Kids.

Team Acella was among the dozens of teams from throughout the region to participate in the 29th annual Rodman Ride for Kids, which since 1991 has raised more than $145 million for youth-focused nonprofits and the kids they serve.

Acella Construction was one of the top donor teams, surpassing its goal of $10,000 and raising $12,970.18 and counting.  Participants included Acella President David Dirubbo, team captain, and Scott Brash, Darla Brooks, Nick Costa, Todd Gainey, Ryan Klebes, Ryan LaVangie, Jay McGilvray, Saul Schrader, Jillianne Tripp, and Marcin Zebrowski.

Acella Construction has participated in this event every year of the company’s existence.  Over the course of those 18 years, Acella has raised more than $100,000 for the umbrella charity that supports youth-focused social service organizations that assist at-risk children in Massachusetts.  Rodman for Kids and its affiliated charities fundraise year-round, culminating with the Ride for Kids event, a 25- and 50-mile noncompetitive cycling tour, each fall.

“We are so happy to once again support and take part in the Rodman Ride for Kids,” said Dirubbo, who has been participating in this event since before he founded Acella Construction.  “It’s a great chance to have our team come together and be a part of something bigger that benefits all of our communities.  We’re so grateful to everyone who donated on our behalf.”
