  • The #GoBroShamus Charity Ride began on September 8th in Bar Harbor, Maine. Brother Shamus rode down the northeast coast, cycling 900+ miles through 11 states before coming to an end in Jamestown, Virginia after 33 days on the road. The 70-year-old Franciscan friar, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon and lung cancer, crossed the "finish line" on the Saint Francis University campus mall. Students, faculty and staff gathered to welcome him home, cheering him on as he rode his final lap.
