Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Emmaus, Inc.

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Help us to celebrate 36-years of a cycling ride at Emmaus. This is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we need your help. Volunteers are needed for 5-hour shifts between 6 AM and 3 PM on Sunday, September 15, 2024. Volunteers will be placed at the start/finish line at Northern Essex Community College or at one of the 4 ride rest stops.

Proceeds from this event benefit Emmaus, a non-profit housing and human services organization in Haverhill that serves homeless and formerly homeless families and single adults.

Cyclists ride a 15-mile Family Ride, 35-mile, 62-mile or 100-mile scenic route that will take them through Haverhill, MA, up to the seacoast of New Hampshire, and south through the North Shore of Massachusetts. Upon returning to the college, riders can enjoy a delicious lunch.
