Dear friends and family - It's great to be writing you again in advance of Emmaus Ministries' Endurance Ride, an all-day biking fund-raiser to support their outreach to men engaged in survival prostitution. This year, for the first time, Emmaus will partner with Selah Freedom, whichworks with teen prevention, outreach, and safe housing for women who have been trafficked.

I've been volunteering at the Emmaus office this year, helping with administrative projects. Great news just came from the board with the announcement of a new executive director: Noah Adair assumed that role last Monday, and he comes well qualified and well acquainted with Emmaus, having begun his affiliation with Emmaus in 2008 as an intern. The Monarch Thrift Store, another part of Emmaus' outreach, which has been open in Logan Square about 18 months, is doing well. And Emmaus staff and volunteers continue to love and befriend men on the streetsevery night of the year.

I was away for a family event and missed the ride last year, and am excited now to be getting my bike and body ready for the ride on Saturday, June 10th. My biking goal will be 100 miles again, and I've had some great training rides so far this spring. The overall fundraising goal is $70,000. I've set a personal goal of raising $1500 - will you consider a gift to help me meet that?

If so, please go to enduranceride.org, scroll down and click on "Contribute online through someone's personal fundraising page," under "Sponsor a Rider." Then just type in "Judi," and it will auto-fill to my page. When you get there, click on Give Now for a quick credit-card transaction. Let me know if you can't reach the page.

Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness about this. I think this will be my 11th ride of the 14 years Emmaus has hosted the Endurance Ride. It's as satisfying to me now as it was more than 10 years ago. Bless you for your generosity and grace in giving.

Warmly - Judi
