What is the Ride for Refuge?

This is Christie’s 10th year participating in the Ride for Refuge, taking place  Saturday September 23, 2023.

RIDE is a fun-for-all-ages fundraiser that helps big-hearted people show their support for the refugee families we serve by bringing important funds where they are needed most. It’s also a great way to introduce your friends, family, neighbours, and coworkers to a cause near to your heart… and have some fun doing it too. 

Participants can either:

  • Select the classic 10, 25, or 50 km biking distances, 
  • Or select the 5 km walk 

How to Get Involved?

With a little under three months until the official Ride for Refuge day, we are hoping you’ll consider showing your support this year in one of the following ways:
