The Ride for Refuge is a cycling fundraiser that partners with over 175 charities to raise funds for the displaced, the vulnerable and the exploited. This year, Immanuel Christian School (ICS) in Alymer is registered to partner with Ride for Rufuge and will receive up to 70% of all funds raised by its teams. The Ride will take place on October 5 in north London, beginning at West Park Baptist Church, 955 Gainsborough Rd, London. The 12 km route is on residential roads or parks, and it is suitable for children. Grades 5-8 students from the school are invited to fundraise or simply register ($25 fee applies) with the ICS team.
Those who would like to participate in the family-friendly bike-a-thon can sign up online at http://rideforrefuge.org/home and register with “Immanuel Christian School Team.” They will need to indicate that they are riding for the charity “Immanuel Christian School.”
