A group of 45 cyclists kicked off World Relief’s fifth annual SEA-TRI-KAN bike ride from Hogan Park at Russel Road on Wednesday morning, June 19.

SEA-TRI-KAN (pronounced see-try-can) is a five-day, 450-mile ride across the state, connecting World Relief’s three offices in Kent, the Tri-Cities and Spokane. The ride, which concludes Sunday, is a fully-supported bike tour fundraiser in support of refugees and asylees starting a new life in Washington state.

Riders expect to raise $160,000, their targeted goal, to support World Relief’s programming for the refuge community. Through the program, refugees build the skills and make the connections necessary to begin their first jobs in America.

The ride features a mixture of community members, local refugees and cyclists in their coordinated jerseys.
