MCC Pedaling for Hope Cylathon


Everyone can be involved in the MCC Pedaling for Hope Cyclathon. Choose to ride a 20km flat loop, a 50km 'rolling' figure-8 circuit or a 12km guided family ride. Children under 12 who ride receive free admission to the children's area so plan to spend the day! If you aren't able to ride, consider donating to support MCC's maternal and child health project in Afghanistan and the King Road team. 

Join the King Road MB Church team: Click Here, then click the green 'register' button, choose 'group', group name is "King Road MB Church".  Let's see how many riders we can get together this year. It can't possibly be as wet at last year! :)

Ride is on Saturday, September 16 at the MCC Festival for World Relief. Meet at the Tradex between 8:00-8:30am to check-in and submit collected donations. The 50 km riders will depart at 9:00, the 20 km riders at 9:15, and the Family riders at 9:20.  Helmets are mandatory, and water bottles are strongly suggested. There will be one water station on the 50 km route.  As the routes are on public roads, all traffic rules must be observed.

All "suggested donations"/registrations for our King Road team have been covered.  Go and raise funds to support MCC's maternal and child health project in Afghanistan. Funds will go to address high levels of malnutrition and preventable illnesses due to chronic drought and conflict. Activities include nutritional training; training and support for facilities that treat malnutrition; hygiene and sanitation training for adults and school children; as well as constructing well and latrines at homes, schools and clinics. The project is expected to benefit 121,600 adults and children. 

Again this year, there is a commitment from ‘friends of MCC’ to double the first $100,000 brought in from the cyclists. The total amount the cyclists raise plus the match will be directed to the specific project in Afghanistan and leverage 10:1 Canadian government matching. This means you have the opportunity again, to be part of something EPIC!
