Overview

The Parish Communities of Church of the Holy Family and St. Columba Church will be hosting our 1st annual J.O.Y. Ride — a Motorcycle Benefit Ride to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Help us help children with life-threatening medical conditions–and have fun doing it! Following the 9:30 am Mass at Church of the Holy Family in Hebron, CT on Sunday, June 11, this charity run will be followed by a BBQ and raffle.

All proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish® Connecticut Foundation, whose mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, enriching the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

The 2017 J.O.Y. Ride was our inaugural annual charity motorcycle run founded on the mantra of Christianity:

The path to joy is putting

  • Jesus first,
  • Others second, and
  • Yourself last.

Because children bring so much joy to the world, our partnership with Make-A-Wish for this year’s event was a no-brainer.
