Sometimes water is abundant but farmers like Limna Mandol in India can’t get it to their crops. Your gift will help build gravity flow irrigation systems in rural India. Irrigation gives farmers new chances to grow crops for food and income for their families.
Hello, My name is Carlos Cardenas and I'll be riding my bike for the second consecutive year to raise money for the Mennonite Central Committee. Last year I rode my bike from Fresno, CA to Upland, CA with my family following in our family van. This year I will have the opportunity of joining the West Coast MCC Bike Ride 2018 in Kellogg, ID with other cyclists who support the MCC. My wife and kids will also be joining me as volunteers at the 5 day event. The riding will be challenging but the scenery should be spectacular.
The MCC project that I'm riding for this year is an Irrigation Project in India to help farmers build irrigation systems to properly water their crops.
I have been involved with the MCC auctions in Upland, CA for the last several years and I love the work this organization does around the world. I look forward to pushing my body to the limit for a good cause. Any donation amount will be greatly appreciated. Below is a web address to my blog where I'll be posting pictures leading up to the trip as well as photos from each day of riding. Thank you for your time and generosity!
