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 PILAS Student Ministry Guatemala

In Guatemala, there is a deep disparity between the educational quality and opportunities available for urban children of ladino descent as compared to children of Mayan descent living in the rural areas. The harsh reality for many families is that they cannot afford the costs and fees linked with public schooling, much less private schools and institutions of higher education.

Education is essential to breaking the cycle of poverty.

PILAS Scholarships eases the struggle that families face to pay for school related costs and also cares for the overall development of the young students. When you’ve developed your most important skills, when you understand the reality of your community or your country, when you’re conscious of your duty or role as a citizen, this awakens a spirit of entrepreneurship, leadership, and change.


Join our team as we strive to educate minds and educate hearts in the municipality of Sumpango Sacatepéquez Guatemala.
