The last three years AURA has participated in the Ride for Refuge, where people who have chosen to walk or ride or donate to help refugees through AURA. By taking action YOU are directly helping people who are living unimaginably difficult lives. Through AURA refugees from around the world who have no option of ever returning to their homes get a chance to find refuge here in Canada.
If COVID-19 prevents us from getting together like we have in the past there will be virtual options. The RIDE Anywhere option allows for everyone to participate and remain socially responsible, the ride is also adding enhancements to make it more inclusive for folks who want to do non-cycling or non-walking activities.

If you care about the plight of refugees around the world, your support on the Ride will have a powerful impact and create significant change in the lives of hundreds of refugees.
This fall AURA is once again participating in the Ride for Refuge and we need your help to raise critical funds. Everyone who gets involved is directly supporting refugee newcomers to Canada!
We are looking for people to be one of our crucial captains. Lead a team, recruit riders and walkers, and of course, raise money in support of AURA. We are also looking for more riders and walkers to join our teams.
