Bike for Bibles (B4B) is a series of annual events that brings cycling (and outdoor enthusiasts) of all ages and walks of life together to support the work of the Canadian Bible Society.
This has been a difficult year for many people, especially for vulnerable young people across the nation. Many of these young people have been abused and/or developed mental health issues.
Overseers of various youth programs have been quoted as saying that spiritual support is a vital need right now for their faith-based youth centres to aid in the support efforts of at-risk young people. In some markets there are reports of upwards of 60% homelessness rates among young people (between the ages of 12 to 17) many of whom have left abusive home situations since the start of the COVID crisis. The situation is dire.
The Canadian Bible Society is responding to this situation through fundraising campaigns such as B4B to provide much needed resources to support the mental and spiritual wellness of at-risk youth.
Enter the new B4B Ride & Raise virtual fundraiser that encourages good physical and mental health for participants, while also supporting the mental and spiritual health of vulnerable youth.
This fundraising event is open to people of all ages and physical activity levels with three (3) registration options:
|Casual “Family & Friends” (Ride-Run-Walk)||Ride, run or walk 100 kms and raise $100+ during the month of September|
|General “Fun-Ride”||Ride 500 kms and raise $500+ during the month of September|
|X-Treme Rocky Mountain Challenge*||Ride 1000 kms and raise $1000+ during the month of September
(This option allows participants to virtually experience the mental & physical challenge of cycling in the Rocky Mountain Ride which takes place in the mountains of BC; and is set return to live event format in 2022)
*Raise $1,000 for the cause during this virtual event and receive an official B4B professional grade “X-Jersey” for free (while supplies last – limited sizes)
