The #WUSCSomeGoodNews initiative features stories of positivity and hope of people who are making a difference in Canada and around the world, particularly during this pandemic.

Meet brothers, Kai (age 10) and Phoenix (age 6), who are participating in this year’s Ride for Refuge – a family-friendly fundraiser that supports charities like WUSC who provide hope and refuge for some of the world’s most vulnerable people.  On October 3, Kai and Phoenix will be scooting 5km each – from one skatepark to another in Ottawa – to raise funds for WUSC’s Student Refugee Program.

“We’ve been watching videos about the life of refugees and wanted to help other [kids] to have a chance to study and go to school.”

Every year, WUSC provides over 100 young refugees with life-changing opportunities to continue their education on Canadian campuses and build a better future for themselves and their families.

“By fundraising, we are supporting a charity who is bringing hope to a future generation, their families and communities. We have been busy fundraising through our web page and are very proud to say that we have already surpassed our target! Create a team and come join us for Ride for Refuge!”
