Mercy Riders

Pushing pedals, pushing hope


The Mercy Ride is not about some riders going across the country. That’s been done lots of times. We are about advocating Mercy Housing and what it does across the country in lots of communities, housing those whose lives do not include a bare essential: a roof over their heads.

We are looking for individual supporters and corporate sponsors. We have two goals, really. First is to raise $50,000 for Mercy Housing. The second is to spread knowledge of Mercy’s unique presence across the U.S. These two goals require us to ask friends and friends-of-friends to consider what it’s like to live at the bottom, on the streets, simply economically unlucky or fighting addiction or trying to turn a damaged life around. A safe place to land each day is hardly optional for those seeking to rebuild lives.
