Fitness Day with Global Scholars Fellowship Club (Columbia College on the Ride!)
October 3 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join our Columbia College team in the Ride for Refuge! The Global Scholars Fellowship Club is walking, running, biking, hiking, dancing, cooking, painting, baking, and anything-ing to raise awareness and raise $2,000 for World University Services of Canada – Student Refugee Program. This program helps refugee students re-settle in Canada, and get access to higher education for a better future. Our next student will be arriving in Winter 2021!
To pay tribute to our next student’s journey, CC on the Ride is collecting 13,866km, the distance between Vancouver and Somalia. On October 3rd, our Fitness Day, we will complete various activities in exchange for kilometers as a last push to our goal. You can join us for both parts of the day (bike ride or workout session), or either one. Interested? JOIN OUR TEAM!!!
