What moves you? Join us on October 2, 2021 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable, and exploited people everywhere.

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 Hope Restored International

Hope Restored International exists to help children and their families have a brighter future through providing education to the poor and marginalized in India. Hope Restored provides the opportunity for children and their family to work towards freedom from the cyclical poverty and hopelessness they have known. We work with qualified groups to prosper in education through eight tutoring centers in various locations within India.


Why do we do what we do? One of our students, Anuprabha, is a good example of how Hope Restored tutoring centers change lives:

(/Anuprabha was studying in 7th grade near one of our centers in South India, (her father passed away in the beginning of the academic year). She missed him so badly that she was not able to come out of her sorrow and she was not able to go to school. The instructors at our center took the time to encourage her and show her a bright path for the future. Now she is back in school and she is attending our tutoring center regularly.
