About Rising Above

Rising Above seeks to bring healing to this land by educating, equipping and empowering Indigenous people in Canada to rise above their pain to experience life, identity and purpose in Christ as they were created to.


The Ride For Refuge is Rising Above's biggest fundraiser. This year, the proceeds from the Ride will support programs that bring emotional healing to issues such as sexual abuse, generational impacts of Indian Residential Schools and grief. A counsellor training program seeks to equip and empower Indigenous leaders to become confident and competent caregivers in their community. A program targeted specifically for Indigenous youth seeks to develop character, skills and leadership.
