Members of Sikh Motorcycle Club of Manitoba, Canada rides 176 Km to fundraise for diabetes research

The Sikh Motorcycle Club of Manitoba (province of Canada) kicked off its fundraiser event, called “Ride For Cause” on Sunday morning dated July 31. The group is part of a nationwide effort for Sikh Motorcycle Clubs to ride motorcycles across Canada to fundraise for Diabetes. Around 20 riders braved the rain and left from Deacon's Corner in Winnipeg. As per Diabetes Canada, a registered national charity whose mission includes serving the 11 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes says, 28 per cent of Manitobans live with diabetes or prediabetes. As a result, many of the members are riding for someone in their life.

H.S. Chawla, coordinator for the Sikh Motorcycle Club of Manitoba says he is riding for his mother. He also told that the funds raised under the event will be spent on research primarily focusing on Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The motorcycle club of Manitoba had its first fundraiser in 2021; however Sikh Motorcycle Club of Canada has been hosting this fundraiser for four years. Last year, Sikh Motorcycle Club of Canada raised $113,000 for diabetes research and Manitoba alone rose just over $15,000 toward that total.
