UBC Innocence Project: Ride for Justice

Saturday, October 5, 2019 - 12:30 to 14:30

Eastwood Cycle Gastown 

The UBC Innocence Project invites members of the legal community, family, and friends to RIDE FOR JUSTICE 2019.

RIDE FOR JUSTICE is an indoor cycling event that will take place in solidarity with Wrongful Conviction Day to raise funds and awareness for those seeking to prove their innocence. Together, we hope to raise $10,000 to support the work of the UBC Innocence Project – while having a great time and sweating it out with colleagues!

Registration Details: Teams should include five riders and registration is $20 per person or $100 per team. Places are first come first served. For more information and to register please email innocenceproject@ubc.allard.ca. Each team will be asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 to go towards the work of the UBC Innocence Project. Please note that tax receipts will be provided for donations only – not for registration fees.

Food and Prizes: A wellness basket will be provided to the winning team and juice and health foods will be provided to all participants post-spin.

Impact of Your Support: The UBC Innocence Project at the Allard School of Law engages a select group of students to provide post-conviction review in response to claims of wrongful conviction. The Project aims to investigate claims of wrongful conviction, identify miscarriages of justice and assist in securing release of wrongly convicted individuals. The program also provides vital education to law students about wrongful conviction, and skills training in post-conviction review work.

To support RIDE FOR JUSTICE and help us reach our goal, please donate now.
