  • On September 1, 2018, 71-year-old Brother Shamus McGrenra, a stage 4 colon cancer survivor, will tackle his toughest route in the history of the annual #GoBroShamus Charity Bike Ride. The journey will begin in Jacksonville, FL, where Brother will cycle 900+ miles around the perimeter of the state of Florida.

    Donate to help Brother Shamus reach his goal to raise $50,000 for the Dorothy Day Center at Saint Francis University, a benchmark that would break his previous donation records.  In the past 7 years, Brother Shamus's cycling trips have raised more than $260,000 for rural poverty.
