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.
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.

Building Assets, Asia helps local communities in SE Asia impacted by conflict and crisis transform their lives through education.
We believe every girl should have a right to education, although today an estimated 130 million girls around the world are not in school. Conflict so often destroys this right, and when violence and war breaks out the instability makes it difficult to establish spaces of learning. By providing a safe learning environment, girl children will be less vulnerable to trafficking, sexual violence or forced into early marriage.
By participating in the 2021 RIDE campaign, not only will you create greater awareness of the plight of girl children affected by conflict worldwide- but you will also provide hope and a safe and peaceful environment for girl children to study, heal and be reintegrated back into society. We believe that by champion girls and women's rights in SE Asia, this can have a direct affect on girls and women's rights worldwide, to include Canada.
