My Message

On October 2, I'm fundraising in the Ride for Refuge to call attention to some people and priorities that I feel really strongly about.

As you may know, I am on the Board of Sanctuary Youth Center, a charity working with inner-city street youth many of which are 15 and under.  Harbourside Rotary a club I a proud to be part of has provided funding to them for the last few years. The past year during COVID has been exceedly challenging the need they serve is even greater. This past year Sanctuary has seen increased traffic and more extreme circumstances and so the need for funding is even greater.

The 2021 Ride for Refuge is a "freestyle" event to avoid mass gatherings and is happening on Saturday October 2rd.  My wife Heather and I and our team (Blazing Saddles '21) are riding again in the COVID friendly version of the ride raising funds for Sanctuary Youth Centre. 

COVID has certainly presented unique challenges for many charities and the staff and volunteers at Sanctuary Youth Centre have been working hard in its adapted its physical space and services to meet the needs of marginalized youth doing more outreach and distribution of food and other services directly to the kids outside of the centre. This year we reached out more with food and other necessities to meet the kids where they were. This required increases in staffing and higher costs for running Sanctuary. 

This is our eighth year of the ride. We are organized and we will be riding our 25 km.

The Ride for Refuge is a family friendly ride to raise money for the vulnerable, displaced and or exploited. More information can be found on their website at:www.rideforrefuge.org 

Heather and I would appreciate any financial assistance you can give!
