Support Team Samaritan House in Ride the Rockies

Team “Samaritan House” is back! For the fifth consecutive year, Team “Samaritan House” will bike in Colorado's Ride the Rockies, June 13-20, to help Colorado's homeless. Team captain, Tom Schwein – a Catholic Charities board member – and co-captain Tom Dea have created the riders team in support of the men, women and children who call Samaritan House their home.

The Samaritan House shelter provides overnight stay and long-term residence with intensive case manager. It is one of the five Catholic Charities shelters serving northern Colorado. The ultimate goal of all Charities’ shelters is to help residents become self-reliant by providing needed individualized assistance.

Why Help: Funds raised will benefit Catholic Charities four homeless shelters. Each dollar raised will help change the lives of individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness in our local communities. Your support will go a long way as each meal provided at Catholic Charities’ shelters costs about $1.60.

Last year, Catholic Charities’ shelters provided 180,000 nights of shelter and served approximately 430,000 meals.

When: June 13-20, 2015

Where: Grand Junction to Westcliffe, the ride will exceed 42,000 feet!

Goal: A commitment of a minimal $5,000 per rider and $75,000 $100,000 as a team.

Top fundraising rider will receive a plaque at Samaritan House with their name!
