Ride for Refuge

Please see the following message from Rev. Burrows:

Ride for Refuge: On October 3, I will be joining thousands of other riders, walkers and volunteers across Canada to help raise $2,500,000 for some of the most marginalized people in our world. The RIDE supports hundreds of local charities. I have been cycling the Ride for Refuge every year since 2014, and together, the Anglican East NL team has raised over $25,000 in that time, which has been matched by the federal government. This year, a number of friends and I will be cycling, running, or walking from Cape Spear to the Anglican Cathedral in support of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (pwrdf.org). The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is the Anglican Church of Canada's agency for sustainable development, relief, refugees, and global justice. This year PWRDF is supporting the St. Jude Family Project that works with smallholder farmers in rural Uganda.  St. Jude's has an agricultural school that integrates environmental protection, gender empowerment and income generating projects connected to farming. The project will aim to train local families in environmentally friendly fertilizing techniques such as worm composting and manure teas, and do their part to fight climate change by planting 80,000 multi-purpose trees that will benefit the local population.  Click on the link below to visit our Team Page - register and help us fundraise.

 Thanks for your support! It will be worth it!
