Bring life-saving help to children displaced by conflict

What is Ride to Thrive?

This year we have watched in horror as schools, hospitals, and civilian convoys have been attacked in Ukraine. More than 2.5 million children have been displaced because of this war. And yet this is only a fraction of the more than 400 million children who are impacted by armed conflict worldwide.

Moved by these realities, and as people transformed by the gospel, you can make a difference for these children!

This year, our annual Ride to Thrive is focused on raising awareness and support for children in crisis due to armed conflict. Will you join us to reach our goal of $300,000 to help children in Ukraine, Yemen, Afghanistan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo?

When you chose to participate, advocate, and give, children will receive:

More than a Ride

Not everyone is a bike rider, but everyone can make a difference. This year, we are welcoming runners and swimmers as honourary "riders." All that matters is that you participate!
