Go Joe 20: Final Day

SCRANTON -- Go Joe 20 is in the books.

Joe Snedeker rolled into the St. Joseph's Festival in Lackawanna County just before 9 p.m. Saturday.

Huge crowds gathered at Marywood University to welcome Joe as he wrapped up another year of riding and raising money for St. Joseph's Center in Scranton.

Joe rode hundreds of miles this week around northeastern and central Pennsylvania.

"I started way up in Bradford County, a lot of hills through Susquehanna County, then we finished the '2' in Berwick and made the '0' through Schuylkill County, towards Carbon County and back," Snedeker said. "But the people I met there and the way they supported St. Joe's, that's what it's all about, so no complaints, no drama. It's all good."

The St. Joseph's Festival Telethon aired on WNEP and streamed live on wnep.com from 8 to 11 p.m. Saturday.

The St. Joseph's Festival wraps up Sunday night at Marywood University.

    The guy is over 50 and rides 500 miles, and people are commenting about the amount of stops he makes. Does it matter if he makes 2 stops or 20? Isn’t the cause what’s important? Why even comment.

    In the past Joe used to ride 100 miles a day and arrive at St. Joe’s on Friday evening. Now he rides less per day and will arrive on Saturday evening. The geezer is ageing.
