  • Beginning the week of September 14, 2020, 73-year-old Brother Shamus McGrenra, a stage 4 colon cancer survivor, will embark on his 10th annual #GoBroShamus Charity Bike Ride. Brother Shamus will ride the Erie Canal, cycling nearly 400 miles from Buffalo to Albany. Your gift will help Brother Shamus reach his goal to raise $92,500 for the Dorothy Day Center at Saint Francis University, which would allow us to reach $500,000 in gifts to the Dorothy Day Outreach Center over the past 10 years.
