This past Saturday, October 3rd, we participated in Ride for Refuge to raise funds for Hands Across the Sea. Participants had the option of a 5km walk/run, or a 10/25/50 km bike ride. Tim had a fantastic team in Halifax, a mother and her son formed a team in Toronto, and Liette and her friends formed a team in Calgary.
Tim is very proud of his awesome bike crew! They biked 25km through the cold, damp rain to raise funds for Haiti. Tim survived another year’s ride on a bike in desperate need of an overhaul.

Liette, Yvette and Rob walked through freezing ice pellets in Calgary to make a difference for kids and families in Haiti. We made up for the cold weather with laughter and warm conversation.

We raised more than $3500 for the wonderful work we’re doing in Haiti!
A big thank you to everyone who donated and supported us. Next year we’re hoping for a few more teams to join us. Maybe you can lead a team in your city. We’re also hoping for better weather!
