Campaign Title

This page was created in support of Endurance Ride 2016 - Click here to join this cause


In the fall of 2012 two individuals came to work at Emmaus Ministries. They hoped to learn to serve others, experience community and to be challenged in how they view social justice. Four years later all those hopes have come true, but little did they realize they would end up getting married as well! 

Emmaus Ministries has been a huge part of our lives over the past years (without it we probably would not have met for starters) and it's mission is an important part of making this world a more loved and just place. We can think of no better way to kick off our marriage than by asking our friends and family to support our effort to give back.

If any of you want to go even futher and join us by riding or volunteering, we would love to see you there!

A bit more about Emmaus: 

Mission: to create a world in which no man has to sell his body to survive.

Founded in 1990, Emmaus reaches out to men in survival prostitution on the streets of Chicago. Through nightly outreach teams and a daytime drop-in center, Emmaus staff and volunteers build relationships of trust with the men, working together to assist them in getting off the streets, rebuilding their lives, and cultivating a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Endurance Ride is a 12-hour bike-a-thon held in Plano, IL to benefit the work of Emmaus Ministries. The 2016 Endurance Ride will take place on Saturday, June 4.

Bike-riding lobsters, should be entertaining.
You are the first couple we've encountered who, like us 35 years ago, offered wedding guests an opportunity to make a donation. Love it!
