Welcome to Hillary's 2020 Cycle for Shelter Page!
We are on our way!
My awesome teammates and I will be riding the CFS metric century in our socially distant fashion, on Saturday, August 22, starting at 8:00 AM. There will be no police guarding us at tricky intersections, or, smiling volunteers at rest stops, or, clean restrooms. But we have done this route many times!
We enjoy the riding, and getting the the word out, that, Emmaus needs our help more than ever. Currently, Emmaus is on the FRONT LINES of the COVID-19 health crisis. Emmaus projects huge losses in its operating budget as the unforseen costs related to this global pandemic continue to rise. In addition, by moving Cycle for Shelter, Emmaus' largest fundraiser, to a VIRTUAL EVENT, Emmaus also faces a huge shortfall in next year's budget as well. We hope you will support my VIRTUAL RIDE, so that Emmaus can continue to care for and serve our community's most-vulnerable members.
I am raising critically needed funds to support Emmaus programs that help families and individuals who are homeless rebuild their lives. On any given night, more than 300 adults and children call “Emmaus” home. Located in Haverhill, MA, last year Emmaus programs assisted more than 2,478 different people each year, including 1,238 children! Emmaus has been recognized in Massachusetts and nationally as a best-practice model for responding to homelessness.
Cycle for Shelter has brought together hundreds of riders and volunteers who care deeply about creating solutions to the tragedy of homelessness. Our teams are practicing social distancing this year. 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 --any amount you can give is very much appreciated!!! Hillary
