In September 2019, 72-year-old Brother Shamus McGrenra, a stage 4 colon cancer survivor, will embark on his 9th annual #GoBroShamus Charity Bike Ride. Br. Shamus will start pedaling at the Queen of Peace Friary in the Upper Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA and travel to NYC by way of Cumberland, MD, Washington, D.C., Lewes, DE, Cape May, and Philadelphia. Br. Shamus will conclude his journey at The Catholic Worker, co-founded by Dorothy Day.
