Habitat for Humanity Canada is a national, non-profit organization who makes homeownership possible for low-income families that could not otherwise afford to own a home. Habitat homes help families avoid making impossible choices between rent and other basic necessities by providing them with a mortgage they can afford.
The Ride for Habitat was established in 2010 to raise awareness as well as funds to help build more Habitat homes in Canada. Last year’s Ride for Habitat was the most successful one to date and included over 60 riders with a total of more than $17,500 raised to help fund local homebuilding activities. This year, the committee hopes to double those figures!
On the morning of June 8, riders will gather together at one of several starting points, including Vaughan, Kitchener/Waterloo, Hamilton/Milton, and Belleville/Peterborough, before embarking for the Barrie area at Centennial Park near the town of Innisfil, Ont., which is off Highway 400, just one exit south of Barrie. No matter which route the riders take, the committee says they can guarantee that the scenery will be beautiful and it will be a great ride in support of a worthy cause. Don’t ride? No problem, you can still support by pledging your support to registered riders.
Registration is $50 per bike ($50 covers registration for both the rider and the passenger) and is available online at www.rideforhabitat.com. Riders will receive a free 2013 Ride for Habitat T-shirt as well as enjoy lunch and prizes at Centennial Park.
The Ride for Habitat is organized by Habitat for Humanity Canada and the HFH Huronia affiliate, with support from volunteers of the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) and the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH).
