Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page.
My husband Michael Ross and I are participating in the 2020 VIRTUAL Cycle for Shelter from July 1 to September 30, 2020. Our team is named 1984 Strong to honor our 36 years of marriage. Throughout those years, Mike and I have shared a vision for social justice and racial equality. We have always contributed our money, time, and talents to support organizations like Emmaus. These shared values have made our marriage strong - 1984 Strong!
As many of you know, I work as the Director of Philanthropy for Emmaus. I have spent the last 25 years helping to build this organization into what it has become today. Since I've been responsible for overseeing Cycle for Shelter for 25 years and working at the event, I haven't been able to ride in it. Mike has represented our family solo in Cycle for Shelter for many years.
This year is different, to say the least! We are doing it together! Mike and I are frequent riders. We love the rail trails and have been riding 4 - 5 times weekly since May. Our goal is to ride a minimum of 1,800 combined miles between July 1 and September 30 and raise at least $1,800. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Right now, 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.
