Ride for Refuge

Join us on Saturday, October 5, 2019

Ride for Refuge (RFR) is a national cycling and walking fundraising events that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere. nightlight Canada serves poor and marginalized people in Ontario; providing them with a safe place to build meaningful relationships and some shelter from the elements (rain, snow, extreme heat). 

RFR is our primary fundraising event of the year in the Cambridge area, and our secondary fundraising event in Belleville and Kingston (Coldest Night of the Year is our main event in those cities).
Event details are different for each city, and you can find the details below.

Belleville Participants

As a Ride Anywhere event, you can chose to ride or walk in your neighbourhood or favourite outdoor path, or you can join the nightlight Kingston crew in the West-end of Kingston for a family-friendly event with lots of activities for kids and a fundraising BBQ lunch. 

Cambridge Participants

This is your big opportunity to help fundraise for nightlight and raise awareness of this valuable centre in Cambridge. You’ll be joining a multi-charity ride/walk event in Waterloo (or you can ride on your own in your neighbourhood – but riding or walking with others is much more fun!). 

Kingston Participants

We are planning a fun, family-friendly event in the West-end of Kingston. In addition to riding and walking, we’ll have some fun activities for kids at a modest participation fee (with all funds going to nightlight Canada), a fundraising BBQ lunch, a silent auction and local bicycle vendors with information booths.
