Mike St Thomas was one of the many participants in the Ride For Refuge event held in Peterborough, Ontario. Ride for Refuge events take place across Canada and the United States. It’s a fun, family-friendly bike-a-thon supporting charities serving the displaced, vulnerable, and exploited. The Peterborough event raised a total of $28, 464 for those in need.
Mike, peddling his faithful machine “Rusty”, completed the 25 kilometre ride. His team, Syrian Family Riders & Walkers, raised $2,285. That funding is destined for good use. It will allow The Parish church to bring a second Syrian refugee family to Peterborough.
In tribute of the event, Mike picked up his guitar and created the song “R. For R. Peterborough – The Parish” to honour the occasion. Watch the video as soon as you can, it will only be available for a few more days.
