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 Canada Africa Community Health Alliance

The Canada Africa Community Health Alliance (CACHA) charitable organization brings together caring, giving partners in Canada and in Africa (Tanzania, Uganda, Bénin, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo), who together accomplish extraordinary things through outreach with medical missions, and through the delivery of sustainable projects focused on health, education including post-secondary scholarships, infrastructure, economic empowerment, psychosocial support and nutrition to orphans and vulnerable children.


The CACHA story is about family. The CACHA family itself is made up of volunteers, staff and donors, all of whom come together with a common purpose to support initiatives that help build and strengthen communities and provide care and support for our beneficiaries. COVID-19 has negatively impacted our work but not our sprit! The RIDE campaign will help CACHA's outlook for 2021 and moreover, our beneficiaries in Tanzania, Uganda, Bénin and the DRC .

Let's do it!
