Texas Mamma Jamma Ride Welcomes New Director

Lone Star Circle of Care (LSCC) is pleased to announce Rob Hill as the new director of the Texas Mamma Jamma Ride. In this role, he will oversee and direct the annual charity bike ride that raises funds to support the life-saving mission of LSCC’s Big Pink Bus. The mobile mammography unit provides free and low-cost screening mammograms to Central Texas women.

Hill is taking over the Texas Mamma Jamma Ride (MJR) following the retirement of Marion Martin, who served as a passionate and dedicated director of the Ride for eight years. Hill, a long-time announcer for the MJR, has extensive experience producing large-scale athletic events such as the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon and the 3M Half Marathon. Most recently Hill helped produce the Texas MS 150 ride, one of the largest fundraising rides in the U.S., where he was responsible for over $600,000 in fundraising and sponsorships, and managed relationships with 600 fundraisers and 42 teams.

“As a lifelong Austinite and cyclist, I’ve always had a special love for the Texas Mamma Jamma Ride. It’s one of Central Texas’ greatest fundraising rides,” said Rob Hill, Texas Mamma Jamma Ride Director and Lone Star Circle of Care Director of Development. “Since the first ride in 2008, it’s distributed over $3 million to support the local breast cancer community, and now, its support of the Big Pink Bus means thousands of Central Texas women a year will have affordable and easier access to mobile mammography that will save lives.”

In addition to serving as the Ride Director, Hill is also the new Director of Development for Lone Star Circle of Care and is tasked with boosting fundraising for the non-profit organization. His experience with significant fundraising efforts for Goodwill Industries of Central Texas, We Are Blood, and the National MS Society, will be beneficial to the role.  

Since starting at Lone Star Circle of Care in January, Hill is already hard at work gearing up for the 2024 Texas Mamma Jamma Ride which will be held Saturday, September 21, at Murphy Park in Taylor, Texas. With routes of 15, 25, 50, and 70 miles, there is a distance for riders of every skill level who want to support breast cancer screenings. Ride registration opens soon.
