RIDE 2014 | Nation Wide

We'll be joining thousands of Canadians riding for charities serving the displaced, vulnerable and exploited. Riding a bike can seem like a small thing, but the impact is huge -- the funds we collect will change lives through the work of Defend Dignity. Click on the picture to go to the Defend Dignity Ride for Refuge Event Page.

Please, join a team, start a team and get sponsors, or perhaps give generously to those participating, and remember us on RIDE day as we huff and puff our way to the finish line. Knowing you're supporting us will be a great encouragement!
