Charity Bike Ride Pedals to Fundraising Success


The Brother Shamus McGrenra Charity Bike Ride is boasting yet another remarkable achievement.

Every year, the Franciscan brother sets out on two wheels for an extended trek to raise money for the Dorothy Day Outreach Center in Loretto.

The goal for his 2020 ride was $92,500. According to Saint Francis University, that goal was easily surpassed – raising more than $113,000 as of early January.

That puts the total amount raised over the 10 years of the charity bike ride at more than $520,000 — a remarkable achievement considering the goal for the first bike ride was only $5,000.
