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.
