2018 Ride for Refuge

Saturday, Sept 29

About the RIDE
Ride for Refuge is a bicycling fundraiser that takes place in several major centres across Alberta and Canada. Individuals, community groups and families are encouraged to sign up, grab a bike and raise pledges to assist a charity of their choice.

Purpose: Medical care for kids
HART’s objective this year is to raise money for a Children’s Medical fund – to address the health care needs of children living in poverty. With YOUR help we can build a brighter future for children faced with serious health challenges brought on by poverty and injustice.

Enjoy a fantastic fun day with family and friends while helping HART.

  • Choose to ride or walk and join/start a team or donate to a rider/walker;
  • If you live too far away from an official location, we encourage you to still participate by choosing the RIDE/WALK Anywhere option;
  • All ages and stages are welcome to fund raise and participate;
  • Enjoy rest stops, great volunteer support, and a delicious lunch;
  • Volunteer positions are available for those who want to encourage and support the cause;
