Father Christopher Heanue, administrator at Holy Child Jesus Roman Catholic Church, recently completed his “100 Miles of Hope” fundraiser to support the parish’s food pantry.
The bike ride was from Holy Child Jesus inRichmond Hill to East Hampton on Long Island. Altogether, he raised $20,000 in his effort.
Heanue was joined by two parishioners, Paul Cerni and Tom Chiafolo. They started with a 5 a.m. mass, followed by a seven-hour, 45-minute bike trip.
They are still accepting donations through their online GoFundMe page, which you can find here.
