Sikh bikers ride 12,000km to raise over Rs 30 lakh for cancer charity

Sikh bikers in Canada rode cross-country to cover a total of 12,000kms to raise money for a cancer charity. The group managed to raise over 60,000 dollars which translates to a little over Rs 30 lakh for the cause.

24 members of the Sikh Motorcycle Club ended their long ride at Surrey in Canada. They took a total of two weeks covering the journey. The members rode a total of 12,000kms, averaging around 1,200kms per day through British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec before turning back at Montreal.

"Every city they went to the Sikh community, the non-Sikh communities, everyone was cooperative of them," club founder Harjinder Singh Thind was quoted as saying by CTV News.

Rider Charnjit Dhadda said, "We thought about those kids that are in need that need that money and so that gave us energy and we kept fighting through it.”

There have been more than 70 individuals and groups who have made donations to support the initiative. The money that has been collected will go to fund research, prevention initiatives and assist those fighting the deadly disease.
