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 NeighbourLink North York

NeighbourLink North York is a community development organization whose mission is to engage and empower neighbours to care for each other in practical, relational and sustainable ways that give everyone the opportunity to live out their potential.


We believe transformation happens when we work together to address the gaps and needs around us. For over 25 years we have been running a volunteer network made up of neighbours, community groups and local churches to serve neighbours including seniors, single moms, youth and those living in poverty dealing with food insecurity, social isolation and poverty. These needs have been amplified over the past year due to the pandemic which resulted in increased efforts through the Willowdale Covid Response Network initiative.


We invite you to join us in supporting our neighbours and building community by signing up, raising funds towards our community work and have fun with your fellow neighbours for an excellent cause.
