Partner With Us

With Open House turning 50 this year we thought it would be fitting to celebrate with none other than a 50km bike ride to celebrate 50 years!

At Open House within our youth programs and the Bike Hut at Malahang Reserve in our weekly outreach we have a strong bike riding culture. An interest in riding is shared by many of our staff, volunteers and participants alike so for that reason we couldn’t think of a better way to connect as a community.

We set out over two weeks to individually but together (via the Strava app) complete 50km each of bike riding (and walking) to help raise much-needed funds to put into action our desire to see those who are vulnerable in our community to be best supported.

We saw those participating achieving a huge collective of 1,076 kilometers.
Through your generous donations, we raised $2,638!

Thank you to all who took part in this journey through both riding (and walking) and donating to support our work going forward. Without our community working together we couldn’t achieve what we have here. Because of your generosity we can impact more lives.

We’re looking forward to continuing journeying with our community to see more lives impacted as we move into the next 50 years!
