Saturday, September 15, 2018 (All day)

The MCC Flatlander Bicycle Ride takes place on the third Saturday in September. The ride is designed to provide an enjoyable bicycling experience for people at all fitness levels. The Flatlander is a benefit for Mennonite Central Committee.

Contributions

The goal for the 2018 Flatlander Bicycle Ride is to raise $10,000 for a water project in Guatemala. The project is to support food security and community organization among Ch’orti’ women in the Eastern Highlands of Guatemala, an area that has been devastated by drought and commodity price collapse for the past 5-7 years.  The water systems assist the women in cultivating their kitchen (and eventually market) gardens during the long dry season in the area, and also provide families with a more stable source of water for household use during the dry season.  
The 2017 Flatlander raised a total of $11,500 for a water project in eastern India.
