Rising Above seeks to bring healing to this land by educating, equipping and empowering Aboriginal people in Canada to rise above their pain to experience life, identity and purpose in Christ as they were created to.
The Ride For Refuge is Rising Above's biggest fundraiser. This year, the proceeds from the Ride will support programs that bring emotional healing to issues such as sexual abuse, residential school experience, addictions, and grief & trauma. A program targeted specifically for Aboriginal youth seeks to develop character, skills and leadership. Ishaawin Counselling Centre, a ministry division of Rising Above, provides counselling and spiritual resources to individuals and families with a special focus on First Nations in Thunder Bay and North Western Ontario, who are marginalized due to urbanization and who are on social assistance. The Centre provides the service regardless of the ability to pay.
RIDE with us on Sepember 30th
