About Mennonite Church Canada

Ride for the MC Canada Witness workers of your choosing!


In last year’s Ride for Refuge, we raised over $35,000 to: train young entrepreneurs in South Africa; grow peace building and justice initiatives in the Philippines; create a safe space for newcomers; help marginalized people in Canada and around the world. Thank you!


Help us build on that success by supporting ministry for vulnerable people in the 16 countries where we work. Please sign up to Ride for Refuge on Sept. 29, 2018. We can do it again!

  • Start a team in your Church or your community, recruit your family and friends and ride for any of MC Canada’s Witness Workers or programs.
  • Ride for your friends in service of the Church, or ride for your official congregational partners!
  • Please include the name of who you are riding for and our congregation name in your team name - e.g. Team Poovong Poole MC. Choose from any of the workers/countries listed at ({https://donate.mennonitechurch.ca/projects/by_worker}
