Ride for the Living (RFTL) commemorates the 60 miles liberated Jews walked from Auschwitz-Birkenau to Krakow, Poland. Participants from around the world gather to take part in this global challenge, in person in Poland or remotely at home, as a way of honoring Holocaust victims and the rebirth of the Jewish community in Krakow. Ride for the Living is more than just a bike ride, it symbolizes our shared Jewish past.

Whether you want to walk 10 miles over the course of a week or bike 100 miles in one day, the RFTL Global Challenge has something for everyone! Click here to learn more about RFTL.


The RFTL Global Challenge is a program put on entirely by JCC Krakow
