Bro. Shamus Charity Ride


  • Charity Ride Sponsors 2016

    Cycling for Charity

    Congratulations to Bro. Shamus on another very successful charity bicycle ride to benefit the Dorothy Day Outreach Center!

    During his 2016 ride, “Cycling the Atlantic Coast for the Dorothy Day Outreach Center,” the 69-year-old friar traveled a total of 1,526 miles over two-months down the east coast from New York City to Sarasota, FL. 

    The ride kicked-off on September 9 from the original New York Catholic Worker in lower Manhattan, founded by Dorothy Day in the 1930s, and ended at Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs parish in Sarasota on Sunday, November 6.

    Not only was this cycle trip the longest in charity ride history, but Bro. Shamus also upped his fundraising goal from $35,000 in 2015 to $40,000 in 2016. Donations will continue to be accepted through the end of the year. Learn how you can donate.
