Thank you for supporting Habitat for Humanity's Build. I'm excited to be raising money to help build strength and long-term stability for families through home ownership.
This will be my first major road cycling event as just bought my road bike in May 2021. Let's hope I can survive this major cycling challenge!
"We have stopped thinking and are starting to live the dream." - Amsale, Future Habitat Homeowner
Habitat for Humanity gives our community the chance to come together to address the need of affordable home ownership. I appreciate all the support I can get! Together we can make dreams come true! Live Life! - Curt
2021 VIRTUAL RIDE THROUGH THE ROCKIES
Ride With Us Virtually on Saturday August 21, 2021
Since 2014, Ride Through The Rockies, Sponsored by Star Building Materials, has challenged riders to cycle over 300kms through the Rockies to raise awareness and funds for Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta.
Over the past eight years, Ride Through The Rockies has raised over $700,000 to help local families build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership.
This year, 30 cyclists will take part in this three-day challenge. As a team captain, I am inviting friends and family to support me and the Habitat cause by joining the Free Virtual Ride on Saturday August 21, 2021.

The families that Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta serves are vulnerable to the current economic slowdown brought on because of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Many Habitat families are restaurant workers, labourers and administrative staff who were laid-off in large numbers earlier this year and continue to look for work.
Your support helps current Habitat families from reducing or deferring payments, to providing additional resources to help them navigate new realities; as well as inviting new families into the program so that more families will know the safety and security of Habitat home ownership.
Support Habitat for Humanity by riding your bike on August 21, 2021, to raise awareness and funds for safe affordable home ownership.
