For a noble cause

Pedal-o-thon will be held in Mumbai tomorrow at MMRDA Grounds, 6am to 9am.

On January 28, Mumbai will witness Pedal-O-Thon, a non-profit initiative by Oberoi International School’s high school students. The event is in partnership with the Fellowship of the Physically Handicapped, an NGO that aims to unite citizens of Mumbai (from grades 8-12) to cycle for a cause and become a part of change.

The event will be held at MMRDA Grounds, Bandra Kurla Complex, from 6am to 9am. What makes the event stand out is that it is a marathon on cycle that aims to celebrate the unique ability present in each differently-abled individual who will participate in the event. Only in its second year, the event is already a hit among Mumbaikars. The marathon will have a 21km route for those who wish to cycle that much, but without any prescribed number of kilometres.

The event has garnered the support of Bollywood actor, Arjun Kapoor. He says, “This is a beautiful cause and is for the disabled, I hope everyone makes sure that they venture out to support this event and what it stands for”.
