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 Opportunity International Canada

Ride, walk or freestyle with us October 2nd!


COVID-19 has devastated many vulnerable communities around the world. For too many families living in poverty, this pandemic has not only brought with it sickness, but also hunger and homelessness. Lockdowns mean many have been unable to work or run the small businesses they rely on for their daily income. Children who have been unable to go to school face an even more uncertain future.


What can we do in the face of these mutually exacerbating catastrophes of hunger, job loss, reduced income, stalled educations, social breakdowns, natural disasters, and above all, increasing extreme poverty?


Act—swiftly, consistently, and tirelessly. We must remain on the frontlines, helping families survive today so that they can thrive tomorrow.


With your help it will be possible!
