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 AURA

We're raising money to make sure refugees get the warmest welcome and best support possible. Join us!


Refugees need Canada

Canada needs Sponsorship Volunteers

Sponsorship Volunteers need AURA

and

AURA needs YOU!


Do you care deeply about the plight of refugees around the world? You’ll be glad to know that it's easy for you to have a powerful impact, and help hundreds of refugees TODAY.


When you choose to sponsor a participant, ride, walk, or lead a team with AURA in the Ride for Refuge, you'll be making a real difference for the world's most vulnerable people.


Effective and empathetic volunteer sponsors do a wonderful job of welcoming and supporting refugees. Every dollar you raise and effort you make in the Ride fuels AURA to prepare and support volunteers, which ensures that refugees have a warm welcome to Canada and a knowledgable and supportive community to help them adapt to their new lives here.
