Top 3 Fundraisers for Active People

It's no secret: walking, running or biking is a wonderful way to raise awareness and funds for your favourite cause while you stay fit. If you love to walk, run or ride, and you'd like to say thanks for the care you, a family member or a friend received at St. Michael's, doing a own charity walk, run or cycling campaign for us is a wonderful way to give back.

 RIDES

If you love to be on your bike and you'd like to fundraise for St. Michael’s, you've come to the right place! And because riding allows you to cover longer distances, you can roll in a tour of scenic sites and attractions and maybe even entice a few friends to come along for the ride on your St. Michael’s fundraising adventure.
