A group of 17 Sikh riders from the Santana Riderz Malaysia Club will ride 16,000km to Pakistan in order to raise funds for children with cancer.
The ride will see them travelling through five countries, and will raise awareness and donations for child cancer patients of the National Cancer Society of Malaysia. The convoy is held in conjunction with the 550thanniversary of Guru Nanak Devji, founder of Sikhism.
The ride is slated to be flagged off from Gurdwara Sahib Polis at Jalan Balai Polis, Kuala Lumpur on 25th September 2019.
They will then ride through Thailand, Myanmar, and India and finally arriving in Nankana Sahib, Pakistan. Nankana Sahib is the birthplace Guru Nanak Devji.
“We hope we’ll be able to ease the hardship of families who are suffering both emotionally and financially. (That is) in line with the theme of our ride ‘Sarbat Da Bhala’ which means blessings for everyone irrespective of race or religion,” said club president Jas Pall Singh.
He also added that the club chose NCSM because they aim to help the children regardless of race, religion and background.
On top of fundraising, the group also planned a “550 Trees Planting Project.”
