Rodney stared Raising Men and Women Lawn Care, a volunteer youth program that helps the elderly, disabled, single mothers and more with their lawn care. The program empowers young boys and girls to get out in their communities and help their neighbors who cannot take care of their lawn chores, all free of charge. This is called "The 50 Yard Challenge". The participants get prizes and encouragement in the form of safety glasses, hearing protection and different color shirts in increments to the number of lawns they've mowed. Once all 50 lawns are mowed, the participant receives a brand-new lawn mower, weed eater and blower. This program is in all 50 states as well as 8 countries around the world and has 4,330 kids currently involved in The 50 Yard Challenge.
We want to shout out to Rodney as an amazing example of Service to your community and the world. You are teaching young boys and girls the value of responsibility, empathy and accountability. This program show cases Rodney's innovation and collaboration skills to impact the world in a positive way.
