Bike, Hike & Trike Fundraising event for Home of Grace

An Event to Get You Moving!

October 1 to 10, 2022

This is an event where we encourage you to walk, ride or stroll in your community for sponsors, as a fundraiser for Home of Grace. Proceeds from the event will be used to support education programs in the community. This year our focus is on:

  • Lunch feeding program – A nourishing hot lunch for school children living in poverty. For many, this is their only meal of the day. Full tummies mean better grades.
  • Education for temporarily housed children – When a child is being sheltered temporarily at Home of Grace, it is important that the child enrol in or return to school as part of their healing process. Help us cover the cost of uniforms, school supplies and school fees.
  • Help a family in urgent need – Occasionally, Home of Grace staff hear of a family that is beyond struggling—they are in a desperate situation. Staff can support these families with a few basic food and household items to help hold them over.

Please join us in a special fundraiser to raise funds to support Home of Grace and its neighbours.

Our goal for 2022 is $10,000 – enough to make a significant impact in the community


How it works:

We ask you to take time during this Thanksgiving season to help families struggling just to survive. Get out this fall and bike, run, hike or stroll  — and get sponsors to do it. Do it solo, with your family or as a team!

It’s simple:

  1. Form a team.
    It could be a group of friends, your family or just yourself. Don’t forget to give your team a fun name!
  2. Register your team.
    Complete the simple registration form at https://hogcc.org/bike-hike-and-trike/ Within a couple of days, you will receive a confirming email from Speroway to let you know that your personal fundraising page has been set up on their site—with a link to it.
  3. Get donations.
    Invite friends, family, and co-workers to sponsor you. You can direct them to your fundraising page, where they can donate online.
  4. Get out there and have fun! Do your thing—any time between October 1 and 10. Don’t forget to take pictures and send them to us! We love getting them.
