Cyclists will ride all the way to Rotary center at Juhu Tara road and back.

RCGM has also garnered support from Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani (KDA) hospitals who will heavily subsidise the cost of the surgeries, which will enable RCGM to amplify the power of their funding by many folds.

Khuzem Sarkarwala – President, RCGM says, ‘We (RCGM) are into the business of community service. Currently we are working to spread awareness about Congenital Heart Diseases (CHD) and how we can help the children in need of vital operations which will save many lives’.
