Riding for the Fifth Year to Help the Homeless

Over the past four years, I have been part of the Team Samaritan House cycling team, and to date we have raised over $140,000 for the Samaritan House homeless shelter in Denver, Colorado (Over $70,000 raised last year – thanks for your continued support!). Last year, Cap’n Tom Schwein, and I (co-captain) assembled a team of 15 riders and participated in the 29th annual Ride the Rockies bike tour, which totaled a GOB of miles in 7 days.

This year, we have grown and now have assembled a team of 19 riders for the Ride the Rockies bike tour. The 2015 tour will be June 13-20 -- 473 miles over 7 days and 41,875’ of vertical climbing (I heard this was recalculated to over 33,000’ – THANK YOU!).

“Team Samaritan House” is once again raising money for the homeless, this time for the Samaritan House and three additional homeless shelters (Father Ed Judy House, The Mission, Guadalupe Community Shelter) that are served by Catholic Charities.  The Shelters help individuals and families end their current state of homelessness with professional care, room and board, food, clothing, counseling, employment assistance, and life-skills classes. The total cost to run the Samaritan House alone is over $8,500 per day. We hope to raise over $100,000 this year.  I got the green light from Anne and we are once again going to personally match every dollar donated (up to $4,000)Please make my wallet scream on the way to > $8,000 for the Homeless!

The Samaritan house Shelter has a great need this year, but if you want to pledge to a different shelter please indicate that.
