Take a virtual RIDE with us! 

The pandemic has forced us to change our event this year – but our mission stays the same!  We ride to end homelessness for families with children through EUMA's The Refuge.

Won't you join us - virtually? Plan a bicycle ride with family or friends, gather a team or go on your own personal ride.

It can be done anywhere - whether you're in Erie, Crawford County,  across the state or across the country - you can be part of Ride for The Refuge this year!

It can be done anytime in the month of September -You can split it up, for example,  biking 1 mile a day or you can complete it all in one afternoon. You set the goal and your pace!

It can be any distance you choose - pick a route and distance that's comfortable for you - whether it's around the neighborhood with your kids or a 50 mile trek - it's the Ride that counts! 

There's no registration fee - you decide how much you'd like to donate to your Ride, or what your fundraising goals are. (If you don't want to fundraise, sign up as a non-fundraising participant.)

EUMA's The Refuge Homeless Shelter for families

Erie Gives kids on steps.JPGWhen you donate to EUMA through this event -- you are helping children and their families move from homeless to home – from hopeless to hope in a brighter tomorrow – even during this pandemic.  

Every child deserves a home… that’s why EUMA’s The Refuge exists… to end immediate homelessness – provide critical emergency shelter, basic necessities, faithful support, and a commitment to ending homelessness – not
merely addressing it.

Last year, 92 families were sheltered at EUMA’s The Refuge, including 194 children. With your help, 70% of the families that stayed at EUMA’s The Refuge last year moved into a permanent home of their own.

EUMA’s The Refuge operates primarily on your private donations - we depend on your support as we work to keep homeless families with children safe during this COVID-19 crisis.
