  • Adults: When you register online, you will automatically accept an electronic waiver, which is all that is needed for adults.
  • Youth/Children: If you have youth or children on your team, they will need to have their parent or guardian sign a printed paper waiver.
  • Waivers will be available at check-in on Event Day.

Route Details

  • Route Distances: We have great routes where you can walk 2.5 or 5 km or bike 10 or 20 km.
  • Rest Stops: There will be one rest stop on each route with yummy snacks and drinks.
  • Signage: Routes will be well-signed with our bold orange RIDE signs.
  • Route Support: Route marshals, rest stop hosts, and support vehicle drivers will provide support along the route.
  • 12 and under participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

What to Bring

A few common sense suggestions:

  • A cell phone for emergencies (recommended but not required)
  • Your bike and helmet or walking shoes
  • Extra snacks if you have allergies or food sensitivities
  • Your own water bottle
  • Warm layers with moisture-repelling clothing. Early October weather can be cool, with rain and wind. The weather might also be gorgeous and sunny. So be sure to keep your eye on the forecast.
  • A passion for the charity you're walking and fundraising for!

About Kinbrace

When you welcome a person seeking refugee protection, you launch a safety net that quickens their experience of belonging, helps them settle, provides protection, and leads to community transformation.


For refugee claimants, Canada is a beacon of safety and protection from persecution elsewhere in the world. Getting to Canada can be risky, and arrival is often troubled by homelessness, fears, tears, and sheer survival.


Svente, mother of two, asks: Who can we trust? Where will we sleep tonight? How do I find a lawyer for my refugee claim? Can my children go to school? What do I need to do next....?


With a safe place to call home, clear information, and a community of belonging, refugee claimants like Svente and her children settle faster and get the protection they need.


Your help means they thrive, our country grows more vibrant, the world becomes more safe, and we all learn and grow in relationship.


Welcome to the Kinbrace Ride for Refuge! Your generosity provides housing, education, and wrap-around community support for refugee claimants.
