About Souls Harbour Rescue Mission

Hunger doesn't take a holiday. WALK or RIDE with us at our brand new amazing location of Point Pleasant Park!


Imagine living in Halifax and not having enough to eat. Or going to sleep at night with your belly rumbling, and wondering if you even care to wake up to live another day.


For our neighbours in need, Souls Harbour Rescue Mission is a true lifeline.


Souls Harbour serves over 50,000 hot, nutritious meals every year to an average of 150 men, women and children each day.


Hope begins with a meal, and by going for a walk or riding your bike for Souls Harbour at this amazing event, you can help raise funds and awareness for the homeless, hurting and hungry in Halifax.


New this year, we are hosting our ride at Point Pleasant Park! Join us for this family-friendly WALK or RIDE and celebration lunch. Bring friends and family. This is going to be BIG!
