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 Safe Harbour

Have you heard about Pictou County Safe Harbour?


Pictou County Safe Harbour (PCSH) is a community-based refugee sponsorship group that was founded in 2015 in response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis. PCSH began with the sponsorship of one family from Syria in 2016, but in the years since, PCSH has remained an active sponsorship group and has welcomed nearly 50 individuals to the community from both Syria + the Democratic Republic of the Congo. These newcomers have become vital citizens within our community - working as teachers, nursing aids, construction workers and cooks. We want to continue this efforts and invite you to join us in raising funds to sponsor additional families in 2022 - increasing the strength, diversity and friendships within our community!
