Last year over ICA had 56 riders join forces and participate in Ride for Refuge. This family fun community event was a huge success, and together we raised over $6,500 for ICA youth services.
Ride with us again, or for the first time, on Saturday, October 3 in the Ride for Refuge. ICA is seeking cyclists of all ages, abilities, and experience to join us in riding and raising funds for immigrants and refugee newcomer youth. Plus this year Ride for Refuge has introduced a 5 km walk route. ICA, along with other community organizations, are riding and walking together for this family-friendly bike-a-thon to support people who are displaced, vulnerable and exploited – and we need your help!
We are looking for people to participate as: riders, walkers, sponsors of riders, fundraisers, promoters and recruiters. If you have a passion for supporting people and love to be active, this is the event for you! Help us raise more money for this year’s youth programs.
