Ride for Refuge is an organization, as well as a day, in which Canadians participate in a family-friendly fundraiser. It is done in solidarity for those who are “displaced, exploited, persecuted, and abused.” We, at SHOW, Ride to fundraise for those in our community who require housing along with the other continuum of supports we offer. This year, the proceeds collected through Ride for SHOW will go towards our “SHOW the Way Home” campaign. This means your Ride can help seniors in our community access affordable housing.

SHOW’s Wellness Initiative

Each week, certified instructors have visited the different SHOW properties and offered gently paced exercise classes for the physical benefit of those participating. Classes so far have included yoga, tai chi, strength and stretch, and even chair yoga! SHOW is fortunate to have received grants to be able to offer this wellness initiative not only to our tenants but to everyone in our community. If you have not already joined us for a class, then we encourage you to come join us in future classes! All classes are free of charge (although donations are welcomed) and offered at a beginner’s level. Just follow SHOW on social media or see the events calendar below. If you have any questions, then please contact Fiona. Hope to see you soon!
