This past summer, 15-year-old New Yorker Emiliano O’Connor took part in a bike tour across America in memory of his late father, Jeremiah William O'Connor III, who was an avid biker and supporter of Catholic Relief Services. Jeremiah traveled with CRS to build wells in Ethiopia and was deeply committed to helping the poor around the world. Emiliano intends to carry on his father’s legacy by supporting our work in Rwanda.“I plan to raise $50,000 that will go to CRS to aid their efforts in improving the future of today's underdeveloped societies,” says Emiliano. “I would love for you to help me carry out my goal—no amount is too small or too big to make an impact on the lives of those in need.” Emiliano is an inspiration to us all.
