Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page.
Thank you so much, my dear friends and co-workers, and family, who have happily given to Emmaus through our cycling! I do enjoy it so much and it does wonderful things for my body. It was humid, and o SO rainy during yesterday's ride, and then the sun came out when most of us were back. Your generosity means a lot to me!
I have a bit more than $300 left to get to my goal of 1500.00--We are grateful for each gift. We have a great cycling team in the North Shore Cyclists. And I really appreciate your teamwork here. We gather and ride for the cause of those women, children, and men who have no homes of their own. Emmaus programs help some of the most destitute in our community get into permanant housing, and get training, skills, and employment.
Last year our NSC team raised over $18,000 to serve the homeless in our area. We hope to raise over $18,000 this year. We are at 16,070 today.Team work is critical when we are out on the roads, we need to protect each other, call out the hazards, as well as draft one another. We depend on our teams as well for fund-raising inspiration.
We raise critically needed funds to support Emmaus programs that help families and individuals who are homeless rebuild their lives. It is a long haul, even if illness is not part of the picture, but frequently it is. On any given night, more than 300 adults and children call “Emmaus” home. Located in Haverhill, MA, last year Emmaus programs assisted more than 3,069 different people each year, including 1,561 children! Emmaus has been recognized in Massachusetts and nationally as a best-practice model for responding to homelessness.
Cycle for Shelter brings together hundreds of riders and volunteers who care deeply about creating solutions to the tragedy of homelessness. I will be included among this group of local heroes who are striving to make homelessness a thing of the past.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
