Ride for Refuge

On October 1st, ride or walk with us in the Ride For Refuge and help children in Latin America get off the streets and into a classroom to get a quality education as you cover those kilometres!

The Ride for Refuge is a fantastically fun, family-friendly bicycling or walking fundraiser in support of 250+ charities serving displaced, vulnerable, and exploited people!

This year, Generation Rising is one of the participating charities — and we are looking for YOU to join our team or start your own to give the gift of education while getting sweaty at the same time. How fun!
