Ride for Hope Western Canada

Join us for a morning of walking or riding across BC or Alberta!

Individuals, families, friends, youth groups will be coming together to show their love and support of Prison Fellowship’s work with incarcerated men and women, their families, and children.

All funds raised will support the work of PFC in British Columbia or Alberta, depending where you are participating from. Whether we are working with families affected by incarceration, sending children to summer camp, or encouraging prisoners who are seeking a different path, all of PFC’s programs are pursuing a vision of reconciliation and restoration based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. 

Sign up to walk or ride with your family or group in support of PFC’s work across Canada. We’ve been separated for a long time from those we value, and this is a great way to be involved together while honouring social distancing guidelines.

The route you choose to walk, or ride is entirely up to you, use your favorite park or trail or somewhere you are familiar with.  Remember to always be safe and wear the appropriate head gear and obey all traffic laws. Whatever distance you decide you can track on your mobile device and remember it’s a return trip so 5km out is 10km return.
