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 Serving South Sudan

Make a difference for South Sudanese refugees, who are more vulnerable now than ever!


There are 1.3 million South Sudanese refugees along the northern border of Uganda due to the war & atrocities that have been taking place in their home country.


Serving South Sudan works with trusted national pastors within the refugee settlements. The main focus is a church planting training that promotes sustainable development to grassroots communities.



Of course the effects of the pandemic have hit the refugee settlements as well. Now those who have been suffering are at an even greater risk.

Would you join the Serving South Sudan team in bringing much needed training and help to some of the most vulnerable refugees in their settlements?



You can make a difference! Let's Ride!
