PEMBROKE, MA–Acella Construction Corporation announced its 17th 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 its inception has raised more than $143 million to support at-risk youth.
