Hillary's Personal Progress
It was a gorgeous ride! 62 miles completed! Rode with the huge group till they passed me; Joe appeared, we rode into the No Hampton stop and met up with 7 of our buddies. Rode the remaining 40 mi. with this group-- it happened so fast!! And yet we came in last....!! OK, my GPS says 14 mph average!!
yikes, I've now surpassed the lofty goal of $2,000...let's see if some remaining supporters will push it up further....
THANK YOU so much, everyone who has contributed, and those who are volunteering!! 91% of the funds we raise goes directly to Emmaus's much needed program services. Your support is critical to their continuing. They have $50,000/month in additional costs related to the contagious virus.
Thank you, dear friends and supporters, for contributing to Emmaus's programs through my cycling. So exciting right now, can hardly keep up with the acknowledgements! The 15-mile route from NECC is beautiful-- have a bike? Come out and view parts of Haverhill you may not have seen.
The purpose of all this riding is to raise 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. I am 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
