The Rosary Run is a motorcycle ride borne from the idea of a poker run. The difference is that we ride our bikes to 5 locations in northeast Wisconsin, saying a decade of the rosary at each (instead of accumulating playing cards). Our stops are usually churches, chapels, spiritual locations, etc. Riders of all bikes are welcome, and we always ride on the Saturday of Fathers Day weekend.
We are primarily Catholic bikers, but if you’re not Catholic, we hope you’ll still join us, and perhaps learn a new form of prayer. And if you don’t have a rosary, we’ll gladly give you one as a gift, made and donated by the Dominican Sisters of the Perpetual Rosary in Milwaukee.
The Rosary Run was started in 2011 by Bernie and Lynn Terrien, members of St. Bernard Parish in Green Bay, as a way to raise money to provide clean water to communities in Nicaragua.
About our mission
The money we raise through our annual rides goes to support the work of Amigos for Christ, a non-profit organization that serves the people of Nicaragua. Bernie and Lynn, along with a number of others, travel to Nicaragua each summer to work on projects that bring clean, running water to Nicaraguan communities. These are some videos of the work we’ve done over the years:
