For the past 12 years, the MCC Cyclathon has been a great way to get involved at the MCC Festival for World Relief.
This year when you partner with us and raise funds, you will be helping people in dire need of emergency food relief in South Sudan. 60% of South Sudan’s population – or 7.2 million people – are currently facing crisis levels of hunger. The impacts of COVID-19 are making a bad situation even worse. But together, we can bring hope for the most vulnerable people in South Sudan.
Donations will be matched by a group of generous MCC donors, as well as the Canadian Government. This year’s total match for the cyclathon is 8:1.
As usual, there will be three routes:
- 10 km
- 20 km
- 50 km
- or ride on your own!
Starting times and route details will be shared soon!
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.
Although there is no registration fee, a donation of $50 per rider ($100 per family) is suggested. Please include this donation on your pledge form or give online using the information below. As this is a fundraising event, we ask that each cyclist attempt to raise additional funds. Fill out the form (which can be found here) and use it to record the requested information for each donor. Be sure to print clearly and remember to include your name, address, and phone number. All donations of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.
Donations can be made by credit card here or by calling 604-850-6639. The donor will need to include your (the rider’s) name in this process. The steps are provided on the site.
On the day of the ride, bring the completed pledge form and all the money you have collected in an envelope. Submit this at the check-in table, which will be located to the south of the main entrance, close to the inflatable arch. Identify yourself and submit your collected donations. If needed, maps of the routes and contact phone numbers will be available there.
If you have any questions, contact Luke Tilley at email@example.com or call 604-850-6639.
