I'm Heather and I'm a member of the Kaio Community at Emmaus Ministries. In short, that means I'm a full-time volunteer for Emmaus; I'm not in this for the money. I'm in it because I love the men we serve and because God has called me to be a part of this right now.
Oh hey, speaking of money, I see you managed to make it to my fundraising page - welcome! Does that mean you're going to make a pledge to support me in the Endurance Ride? The Endurance Ride is our largest fundraiser of the year. It's a bike-a-thon taking place on June 10th in Plano, IL, and my goal is to ride 50 miles that day. I've never biked that far before and I probably won't have legs by the end of the day. You could be a part of making that happen! Doesn't that sound great?!?
But on a more serious note, supporting me in the Endurance Ride supports the men I serve, and that is a very worthy cause. These men are the lowest of the low in our society - homeless men engaged in prostituting their own bodies for daily survival. They are often overlooked, even by the Church. In fact, before learning of Emmaus you may have not even realized that this is something that happens in our world. But it does, and Emmaus is the only organization in the United States that serves these men.
So please, support me as I bike for them. They're worth it.
