JUNE 1-6, 2021
2021 Annual Canada Africa Partnership Ride
Ride to support the rights of women and girls!
For the past year, Crossroads International has been raising unrestricted funds for a COVID-19 emergency response in support of women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa who have become even more vulnerable to the basic issues of livelihood, hunger and safety. This is why we need your help to support them and crush COVID-19 globally.
JOIN THE Canada Africa Partnership Ride
Crossroads is once again participating in the Canada Africa Partnership Ride. JOIN US this year from June 1st to June 6th for this virtual fundraising ride-a-thon to raise awareness and funds to support Crossroads International’s work to advance women’s and girls’ rights in Africa.
This 15 km challenge goal allows you to fundraise for a good cause while being active and practicing physical distancing. You can ride inside, on a stationary bike or trainer, or hit the open road in your neighbourhood by biking, walking, running or rolling (rollers, skates, etc.)!
LET’S BE TOGETHER APART
It is more than just a ride, it is a chance to come together virtually and help Crossroads International crush COVID-19 with local partners in Africa.
By participating or sponsoring a rider, you can help to continue advancing our work. Your contribution has never been more important. The economic hardship caused by COVID-19 has exposed women and girls and many communities to increased gender-based violence and exploitation within and outside of their homes.
Sign up to fundraise and Ride, Walk, Run or Roll for women’s and girls’ rights with us while participating in a virtual ride-a-thon! Connect with participants from around the world today and start your team!
When you register, you have the option of joining Team Crossroads or forming your very own team in support of Team Crossroads! If you know 2 or more people who would like to join you on this virtual ride-a-thon, we encourage you to form your own team!
With your support, we hope to raise $25,000 from the seat of our bikes toward a goal of $250,000 to support local partners facing this global pandemic.
WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO?
The money raised will be used to invest in local partner organizations in 7 African countries where we operate and will help adapt existing programs to deliver essential services and respond to urgent needs brought on by the pandemic. This includes providing outreach and counseling services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual trafficking, and basic resources such as food, disinfectants, masks, and cleaning supplies. The funds will also be used to strengthen the long-term resilience of food systems and livelihoods for women in rural and marginalized communities.
Join the virtual movement, stand with us and challenge yourself! Together we can crush COVID-19.
