Help raise funds for the Mission to Seafarers', a charitable organization that looks after seafarer welfare by providing spiritual guidance, vital supplies and a voice of comfort to our visiting seafarers in the Port of Vancouver. Seafarers have been essential in keeping goods and critical supplies moving globally during the COVID-19 pandemic and have made some extraordinary sacrifices. The Mission has adapted to new ways of supporting the seafarers. However, there is more that we can do as a community to support the seafarers, such as providing internet access, novelties, and care packages to the seafarers that have endured extended periods of time away from their loved ones onboard ships to keep goods moving while preventing the spread of COVID-19.

You can even share your cycling experiences by posting pictures of your rides on our Strava Club or Facebook at mission2seafarers or on Twitter @MtSVancouverusing using the hashtag #FairFuture4Seafarers and #MTS2021Cycle. Any way you slice it cycling is a lot of fun and a great way to get some exercise in during the summer.
