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 Oxford House Foundation of Canada

Oxford House Foundation of Canada meets the unique needs of men and women in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction through its safe, affordable homes program.


Through the provision of a home and support offered by experienced staff, Oxford residents are empowered to take responsibility for their own recovery and make valuable contributions in their community.


Recovery without relapse is possible in an Oxford home. Each home forms its own family and is situated in a suburban neighbourhood away from dangerous areas.


Please ride (or walk) with us on October 2nd!
