About MCF

Charles Mulli is a former street child from the slums of Kenya. He became extremely successful in business, but then God called him to give it all up and care for the orphaned and abandoned children still on the streets in Kenya. Charles Mulli is the founder and CEO of Mully Children's Family. To learn more about MCF, click here.

Arvid's Role

God has called me (Arvid) to be an ambassador for Mully Children's Family. I have chosen to use ultramarathon cycling as my platform from which to fulfill this calling. This year I will be cycling Vancouver to Halifax in Canada. The journey starts July 2, 2016 in Vancouver. You can follow my ride, here, at www.grandpascan.com/ride.

Donate

I am asking you to help. I am trying to raise $100 for each of the 2500 kids presently at MCF. This money will go towards the purchase of food. To learn more about donating, click here.
