My Message

On September 30th, I'm going the distance for refuge and hope. Please support our team, the Reception House Riders. We are made up of dedicated staff, volunteers, board members and folks who care about providing a warm welcome to government assisted refugees. 

What motivates me PERSONALLY to do this ride? After World War 2, my grandparents were refugees from Ukraine. All they wanted was a safe place to raise their kids, practice their religion, and speak their language. That struggle continues for millions of people. I dedicate this ride to Theodosia and Mihailo , who risked their lives fleeing war for a better future for their kids and grandkids. I wouldn't have the opportunities I have today, if they hadn't made that journey, with the help of kind individuals and relief agencies along the way.

I'm glad your grandparents came to Canada too! If I wasn't away during this ride I would have probably wanted to join your team. May next year? Cheers!
