The PWRDF Unit would like to invite members of the Diocese of New Westminster to visit the PWRDF website "PWRDF gears up for 2020 Ride for Refuge" and see the details of many ways you can participate or donate.

This year 2020 all donations will go to St. Jude Family Project, a Uganda partner with PWRDF. St Jude's project supports food security with a focus on women and children This year is different because of the pandemic. Anyone can participate in their own neighbourhood or parish in a variety of ways.

Go to Ride for Refuge 2020 on the web and click on registration with the PWRDF Team Vancouver.

There is a second team in the diocese, the Divine Dashers based in the Fraser Valley. The will be doing a 5KM walk in Pitt Meadows and one member of the team is doing a 25KM ride.
