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 Youth Impact Jeunesse

Youth Impact Jeunesse was established in 1985 as a charitable organization. Since its inception, YIJ has experienced considerable growth and diversification as it effectively responds to community needs. YIJ inspires youth to move forward to a successful life by investing skills, time and energy into their transition. YIJ empowers youth to make effective choices that give them enhanced control over their futures.


Our goal from Ride for Refuge is to raise $20,000 for Youth QUEST Central, a drop-in centre for at-risk and homeless youth. Here they can access basic services such as laundry, shower, food and clothing or get connected to other on-site programs to assist with education, employment, housing and more.


Ride with us on October 2nd!
