The 27th Annual Cycle for Shelter was a tremendous success!


To date, we have raised more than $118,000 to support our programs at Emmaus.


We are grateful to all our cyclists who believe in our mission and challenged themselves for our benefit. They have made a real impact on the lives of those facing homelessness.  

They are truly an inspiration!


We wish to thank our volunteers who have tirelessly supported our efforts over the past year. From helping at registration, to cheering from the side of the road, to making sure the cyclists had enough water and were well-fed after the ride, their contributions to this event were invaluable.  

We are also extremely thankful to all our event sponsors who generously supported this year's Cycle for Shelter.  We would especially like to acknowledge our presenting sponsors, International Cars and Merrimack Valley Credit Union; our Starting Line Sponsor, TD Bank and our Premier Bike Shop Sponsor, Colonial Bicycle Company.

We are still accepting donations for Cycle for Shelter. 

Reminder:  All riders have pledged to raise the minimum fundraising requirement of $250 by September 1.


Please donate online by clicking on the link to the right.  Checks may be sent to

Emmaus, P.O. Box 568, Haverhill, MA  01831.  Please note in the memo line the name of the rider you are supporting, or if giving to the general event fund, simply write "Cycle for Shelter."  With your help we will exceed our fundraising goal of $130,000! 


Again, thank you all for your support and hope to see you at the 

28th Annual Cycle for Shelter on July 25, 2016!

Cycle for Shelter provides financial support for Emmaus to continue to be able to provide what homeless children and adults need to rebuild their lives - emergency shelter, housing search assistance, affordable housing, adult education and job training, and support services. This year more than 3,500 homeless adults and children will seek help from Emmaus as they face homelessness, a crisis that most of us can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Here's the good news. Armed with sufficient resources, Emmaus can get the job done. In the past year alone, we have moved 200 homeless families and 80 individuals into permanent housing.

Your support helps Emmaus "empower families and individuals to reach their fullest potential."
