OCTOBER 5, 2013 Hamilton will Ride to support some of its favorite partner charities.  The Ride for Refuge is a fantastically fun, family-friendly bike-a-thon that supports 175+ charities who serve the displaced, vulnerable, and exploited across Canada!  TrueCity congregations are coming together again to help this event happen in our city. Find a bike; bring and friend, and Ride with us in support of these great local and national causes!  Go to to find out more!

Hamilton already has 18 local and national charities that are partnering with the Ride this year, which means that if you Ride for the charity you love to support, they will receive the funds you raise! It’s easy; just signup online and come out to ride either 10 km, 25 km, 50 km, or 100 km. You can join a team that is already riding for a charity you want to support, or, better yet, create your own team and get your friends on board with you.

Below are the charity organizations that are partnering with us at this point. If you don’t see your favorite group there, it’s not too late to have them sign on as a partner either!
