Since 1894, Martha O'Bryan Center has been committed to eliminating poverty in the lives of those we serve.

We know that access to an excellent education and clear pathways to college are catalysts for change in struggling communities. Martha O'Bryan Center's programs strategically work together to build upward mobility, resilience, and well-being within families.

100% of cyclist raised funds will benefit the cause.

Our goal is simple:

We want to send 1,000 low-income college students to college.

Funds raised from the TennSpeed will:

Create an integrated Educational Pathway to College, beginning in middle school

Provide students with college essentials:

  • Transportation
  • Books
  • Technology
  • Degree-specific expenses

Support students in knocking down obstacles so students can achieve the highest level of success through Post-Secondary Success Coaches

Expand the Center's college access work


All families within the Martha O'Bryan Center network of services will be eligible for TennSpeed support.

Application details will be available January 2018.
