What is Ride for Compassion 2019?

In 2019, Ride for Compassion will cover over 500 kilometres from Albany to Perth in Australia’s south west from 19 to 26 October 2019.

Their purpose: To raise $50,000 to fund a Critical Needs project for highly vulnerable children in Uganda.

Through home visits, our frontline church partners discovered 14 Compassion assisted children who require decent and safe shelters. Inadequate housing has exposed these 14 children to preventable dangers and has adversely affected their wellbeing. Providing a safe and stable home environment is so important for children's health, and for their physical, socio-emotional and spiritual development. Through this project, these children will have new homes constructed for them which will improve their standard of living.

Become involved in Ride for Compassion

Interested in joining a group of like-minded people this October on the Ride for Compassion? You’ll raise funds for highly vulnerable children living in poverty and cycle over 500 kilometres from Albany to Perth.

There is an expectation that all riders will undertake extensive training before the event, they will pay on road costs, and will raise significant funds for the work of Compassion.

Love to be involved, but not keen on cycling? We’re looking for volunteers to help with driving the bus and other support vehicles, preparing breakfast and lunch, first aid, hydration and other tasks.
