Event Day Details

Save the date - RIDE Day is October 2, 2021!

The Ride for Refuge is a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraising event. Team Captains select their charity of choice when they start their team.

Virtual RIDE Day

This is your own self-organized event! Here are some key things you'll need to do on October 2 (or whatever day your team participates):

  • Gather with your covid-safe bubble (or on your own)
  • Map out a safe cycling or walk route
  • Let someone know where you are
  • Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
  • Add cash and cheque pledges to your Fundhub
  • Share online as you go! #ride21
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • Be safe and have fun!

RIDE T-Shirts

Good news! If you've earned your t-shirt, we'll mail it to your home!


We'll send a groovy RIDE shirt to those who raise their minimums ($150 for adults, $75 for those 17 and under). Fundraise early and you'll be able to wear your shirt proudly for weeks before event day. It's a great conversation started as you recruit teammates.

About Christian Horizons

Come and ride or walk with us to help raise $100,000 to support people with disabilities here in Canada and around the world!


Because you care, kids like Jessica from Toronto will get to attend Family Camp this year. She'll have a volunteer who will help her participate in fun camp activities together with her friends and family.


Thanks to your support, children with complex disabilities like Sahibudin in Ethiopia will get to go school. This is a big deal because less than 2% of the 8 million children with disabilities in Ethiopia attend school.


15% of the world's population live with a disability.

80% of that number live in the developing world.

90% of children with a disability don't have access to education.


Thank you for making a difference.
