Ride for Refuge – Done!

This past Saturday, I participated in the Ride for Refuge (more about that here).  It was a soggy, wet, chilly Vancouver fall day, but we still managed to have a great time, raise over $1,000 for R.E.E.D., and bike 10K (we opted not to do the 25K when we saw the weather that day!)

I’m so proud of our awesome team and thankful for all of the support of The Point Church and our family and friends!  Thanks everyone!!!

Below are a few pictures chronicling our day!

We began by having to break the chain on one of our bikes because no one remembered the combination for the lock!  We were successful, even though we only had some IKEA tools to work with.  A little determination goes a long way!

Our team, post-ride, with our other amazing teammate, Thomas, who rode 100K (he was taking a quick, mid-ride break and we were able to say hi!).  Also, our lovely friend, Soojin (not pictured), joined us, and cheered us all on.  Thanks team!!!

Ride for Refuge

In just 11 days, I will be participating in the Ride for Refuge for the 3rd year in a row.  This will be the third year that the Point Justice Team has ridden to raise money for R.E.E.D., an organization who “seeks to end trafficking and sexual exploitation and strengthen the anti-trafficking movement through a comprehensive approach to change in the radical tradition of Christ.”  As a church, we have done several projects with R.E.E.D. and love supporting them as an organization.  We are excited to be riding for them again this year!

For more information on the Ride for Refuge and our church’s involvement, check out the blog post I did at The Point Church Blog.
