RTM supports the National Center for Learning Disabilities

We are excited to share with you that, once again, our Delegates and Advisory Board have selected the "National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD)" as the charity that RTM will be supporting in 2018!

NCLD empowers the 1 in 5 of us with learning and attention issues to succeed in school, at work and in life. Through our initiatives and with the expertise of our renowned Professional Advisory Board, NCLD creates programs, research and practical resources to reduce stigma, promote self-advocacy skills and mobilize a powerful force of knowledgeable advocates to create real change. Visit www.NCLD.org for more information and find free resources for parents at www.Understood.org.

RTM is proud to work with the Kids in Need Foundation, whose mission is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom.

Through our involvement, we support classrooms in economically challenged communities across the country by assembling backpacks filled with school supplies.

We help support the following programs:

  • The Second Responder® program provides school supplies to students affected by natural disasters.
  • The School Ready Supplies program provides elementary students with new backpacks and the core supplies needed for success.

We are so proud to have built a community that involves both our attendees and partners through a common goal: supporting our students by supplying the materials necessary to succeed.

RTM Business Group is helping Kick Childhood Cancer!

At our 2017 Fall K-12 Education and CIO Congress events in Orlando, RTM partnered with MLS WORKS, Major League Soccer’s community outreach initiative at our Theme Night Dinner, to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Oncology Group (COG).

Why childhood cancer?

  • Every day, 41 children are diagnosed with cancer
  • 1 out of 5 children who are diagnosed with cancer dies
  • 3 out of 5 who survive children’s cancer suffer late-effects, such as infertility, heart failure and secondary cancers.
  • Across all ages, ethnic and socio-economic groups, cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease in children.

Children's Oncology Group is the world’s largest organization devoted exclusively to childhood and adolescent cancer research, uniting more than 9,000 experts in childhood cancer at more than 200 leading children’s hospitals around the world.

SHARE! We encourage you to support the campaign by posting images with your Kick Childhood Cancer scarf, or other favorite club scarf, on Instagram and Twitter using #ScarvesUp to celebrate Scarftember. MLS WORKS will make a donation to Children’s Oncology Group for each post that includes the hashtag.
