Ryder and her team host the annual Ryder Carve Out Cancer 5K and Festival as well as Rally In the Valley, a unique 7 v 7 lacrosse tournament. Both of these events take place in the fall and raise money for brain tumor research. Ryder has also raised money for research by hosting a Rally for Ryder t-shirt fundraiser.

Ryder 5K is currently funding Dr. Angela Sievert’s low-grade glioma project out of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
