Once a year, hundreds of people across Canada come together to raise funds for more than 500 different charities. If you are interested in having a fun day and helping a good cause, we encourage you to join us! The Ride for Refuge supports charities that “provide refuge and hope for the displaced, vulnerable, and exploited people everywhere.” Since its founding in 2004, Ride for Refuge has raised more than $14,000,000. That’s why we are proud to announce that Friendship Ministries—Canada will be participating in Ride for Refuge once again this year.
Here’s how it works:
First, sign up. You can join an existing team (check the scoreboard section by scrolling down on the webpage), or start your own team by registering online. You don’t even have to be in the same physical location as your team–this is a nationwide event that will be held in 24 different locations across Canada, so you can walk or ride almost anywhere! (Find your nearest Ride)
Then, raise funds by asking family members and friends to sponsor you on your ride. You can use the nifty forms provided online.
Finally, on Saturday, September 29, join with other like-minded individuals and groups to walk or Ride for Refuge. It is sure to be a fun-filled and blessed event.
Our goal is to raise $10,000. If you would like to contribute to the cause, but you can’t participate for whatever reason, you can still support Friendship Ministries Canada by donating online. Go to the Scoreboard section to choose who you will support, and challenge your friends to do the same. Let’s see who can raise the most money!
So, can we count on you for this September? We’d love to see all of our Canadian friends at the Ride for Refuge!
