In spite of COVID-19, we will be participating in Ride for Refuge once again this year. I have taken over the role of team captain for the Holy Cross Lutheran Riders from Anita Syens. This year, we will be fundraising to assist Historic St. Paul’s Caring Cupboard. Because of the pandemic, this event will look completely different this year. Unlike previous years, it will not be a centrally located activity that runs on a single day. We will not have to pray for good weather. There will be no huge lines to register. Between now and October 3rd, team members may participate, either individually or collectively, in their choice of a wide range of freestyle activities that will appeal to nearly everyone. Check out this link to Freestyling Activities to see how freestyling opens up possibilities that go far beyond the traditional bike rides or 5 km walk. The range of fundraising activity options available are only limited to our imaginations and, of course, safe social distancing.
