About Ride for Refuge
Columbia College is once again fundraising in the Ride for Refuge to call attention to the WUSC Student Refugee Program. This is an event to highlight the importance of education for resettled youth around the world. Instead of a group bike ride this year, we’ve decided that we’re going to do Move for Refuge – a range of fitness activities/walk/run together at the park by Science World.
WUSC’s Student Refugee Program (SRP) combines resettlement with post-secondary education in a unique youth-to-youth sponsorship program. Ride for Refuge only takes a few hours of our time, but we know it will make a difference. By participating in the Ride, we’re speaking for people who have little or no voice and who often get left behind or ignored. By fundraising, we’re supporting a charity who is bringing hope and refuge to those same people. Thanks for supporting us! #ride21
