This July, join 10,000 cyclists who will be riding 200 miles from Seattle to Portland in the Cascade bicycle club's signature ride. World Relief is inviting riders to raise money for refugees arriving to our community. This journey is sure to be difficult and rewarding, and cyclists hope that their demonstration and the funds they raise will say that "We Welcome Refugees".
2018 Celebration and 2019 launch Party
Did you ride STP in support of Refugee Resiliency this year? Did you donate in support of a cyclist? Are you interested in STP or SEA TRI KAN 2019 but don't know what in the world it has to do with refugees?? Join us for the afterparty!
- Connect with STK and STP riders
- Share stories
- Learn about the impact of STK and STP fundraisers in the local refugee community
- Be the first to know dates and details about STK 2019!
Refugees are forced to flee their home due to persecution for who they are or what they believe. They arrive to Washington State with great hopes for finding a new home in safety.
Each cyclist raises $975 which will be TRIPLED by a government match and then used to provide housing assistance, transportation, English language classes, job skills training, interview & resume preparation, and much more! Refugees contribute immensely to the economy and culture of welcoming cities. An investment in a refugee family's first months in America is an investment in your community.
After your demonstration of physical strength and mental fortitude, World Relief Seattle will meet cyclists in Portland at the finish line to celebrate! As a demonstration of thanks for your commitment to ride, fundraise, and most importantly, welcome refugees, we want to honor your efforts with a party that will include a refugee speaker, prize for the top fundraiser, and more. Event location and further details to come.
