SEA TRI KAN is a fully-supported, 5-day, 400+ mile bike tour fundraiser in support of refugees & asylees starting a new life in Washington State.
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. World Relief works in 3 regions in Washington State (Seattle, Tri-Cities, and Spokane) to support refugees and other vulnerable immigrants as they bravely start a new life.
Each cyclist will fundraise toward a minimum goal of $1,979 in honor of 40 years of refugee resettlement in Washington State that began in 1979. The funds raised 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 and asylees contribute immensely to the economy and culture of welcoming cities. An investment in a family’s first months in America is an investment in your community.
