KUALA LUMPUR, September 19 — A group of bikers from the Santana Riderz Malaysia Club are set to embark on a biking expedition from Malaysia to Pakistan, passing through five counties for a meaningful cause.

The objective of their long adventure is to raise awareness and funds for paediatric cancer patients of the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) in conjunction with the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Devji, the founder of Sikhism...

...The club president Jas Pall Singh, 46, said this would be their first-ever longest charity ride and aims to support children who have cancer at a young age.

“We hope we’ll be able to ease the hardship of families who are suffering both emotionally and financially.”

He also noted that the reason why NCSM was chosen was because the club aims to help children, regardless of race, religion and background.

“That’s in line with the theme of our ride, ‘Sarbat Da Bhala,’ which means blessings for everyone regardless of race or religion.

Apart from the fundraising efforts, Jas Pall said the club also has a “550 Trees Planting project” in various places leading up to Guru Nanak’s birth anniversary...

...The club also organises the annual Samelen rides with a mission to promote unity among Sikh community and usher Guru Granth Sahib to the Gurudrwara in Khalsa land.
