Do you love bicycling? Do you need volunteer hours? Best of all, are you ready and willing to make a difference in the lives of those desperately in need?

The Ride for Refuge is a family-friendly bicycle fundraiser in support of 175+ remarkable nonprofits, churches and charities serving the displaced, exploited and vulnerable. Over the past 10 years over 5 million dollars has been raised in locations across Canada and the USA. Check out this video to see what the RIDE is about!

This year’s RIDE is taking place on October 5. We are looking for riders, volunteers and donors to help make this event a success for partnering organizations: Women At Risk International, The Hope Project, Barnabas Charities, Eagles Nest, Team Beyond, Association for a More Just Society, Res Life Church [orphanage & missionaries] and Pebbles and Stones. Clearly marked routes have distances of 5, 15, 30 and 50 miles, and a delicious lunch is served to registered riders and volunteers! Cost is $25 to register to ride, but the registration fee is waived and a Tshirt is given to all riders who raise or self-sponsor $150+. Volunteer needs include registration, parking/welcome, lunch, ride rangers, intersection managers, fitting children for helmets if they do not have one, and more.
