Hi, everyone, and welcome to my VCFS 2021 page!
Welcome back, folks!
This year Susan and I are once again riding as team, "Two Tired to Ride", to raise funds for Emmaus Inc in the 2021 Virtual Cycle For Shelter. We hope you will join our team.
The event normally held the fourth Sunday in July was canceled last year due to COVID-19, and we rode a "Virtual" ride to raise funds. This year the ride is back, scheduled for Sunday, September 19, but they are also offering riders the option of a virtual ride like last year. In my case, I plan to do both, giving you options on how to support me and my team:
- I'm riding the 62 mile ride on September 19
- I'm riding virtually with the goal of riding 1000 miles by the end of September.
Emmaus needs us now more than ever. Emmaus has been on the FRONT LINES of the COVID-19 health crisis and its work became even more critical as it worked tirelessly to keep those with no place else to go safe during the pandemic. And the cost of keeping everyone safe is ever increasing. Canceled fundraising events, plus other additional costs related to staffing and cleaning amounted to a $450,000 budgetary shortfall for Emmaus last year and this year the agency is still incurring tremendous costs. We are hoping events such as this will help us offset these incredible expenses.
I am asking you to help by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of many! 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.
Consider a one-time donation in support of my participation, or maybe a matching donation of 25¢, 50¢ or even $1 per mile of my virtual ride (goal of 1,000 miles). Whatever you can do will be appreciated.
Many thanks for your support!
