Ride for Refuge  October 4
Seven churches make up the Kanata Stittsville Refugee Sponsorship Group. This year this group’s major fundraiser is “The Ride for Refuge”. In this ride, cyclists from the seven churches will be seeking donations to the Refugee Sponsorship Group as they participate in Ottawa’s 25km Ride for Refuge.

Glen Cairn United Church participants are members of GCUC’s cycling group, “The Wheels of Fortune.” These intrepid cyclists currently include Dianne Evans, Wayne and Vida Johnston, Kim and Jim Power , John and Anne Toft, Bill Samulack, Robert Tate, Peter Bishop, Jennifer Yeates, and Marie and Chris Gwilym.

These riders are seeking donations for refugee support. Pledges can be made to individuals, or the team, in cash, through checks made out to “The Ride for refuge”, or on-line by credit card. Visit and click on the team, “Wheels of Fortune”, to make on-line donations.

At the Ottawa “Ride for Refuge” there will be well over 500 riders raising funds for a wide variety of charities. “Rides” take place on the 4th at many other locations throughout North America.
 Support refugees and the  “Wheels of Fortune” riders on this fun filled day.

The Oasis in Kanata
is a community outreach program of Glen Cairn United Church that offers information and support for caregivers in Kanata and its surrounding areas.  Living with mental illness can be as challenging for those close to the individuals as for the individuals themselves.  Check out our *NEW* Web site at  for information about this exciting initiative
