The FCA MX Guatemala Camp is just around the corner!! Our Huddle Leaders and volunteers will be leaving from October 15 - 24, 2016 for this exciting mission trip. Again this year we are planning on hosting not only FCAMX Camp within the village, but we also would like to donate our time and bless the community with items that villagers so desperately need.
One of our projects again this year is to deliver bunk beds, sheets, pillows and comforter for as many families as possible in San Jose Pinola, Guatemala. We are also praying that we have extra funds left over to help villagers with items such as clothing, school supplies and other necessity items. For this fundraiser we need FCAMX TEAM MEMBERS help, the help of ALL our FCAMX State Teams and most importantly YOUR help!!
This year FCAMX has been blessed to have FLY Racing, Western Power Sports and Hole In The Wall Motorcycle Repair in Gainesville, GA to teamed up with FCA Motocross to offer some with some awesome prizes for our first ever Operation Guatemala FCA Motocross Team Challenge: This challenge officially starts on 9/14/2016 and ends 10/5/2016.
