Support to true education is my tribute to Gandhi.
I will be the change I seek.
I pledge to teach at least ONE assigned lesson at an underprivileged school (within next 6 months).
The Peace Ride is now a four year long tradition that has grown to celebrate the man who personified peace – Mahatma Gandhi!
While the history of the ride is a short one - it is indeed a rich one.
This is the year it all began! The Atlanta Foundation team, with strong support from the Joy of Giving volunteers organized the first edition of The Peace Ride with the plan of 15 people riding 15 kms around Necklace Road. On the event day, a 100 riders showed up! While this was a short event, every rider donated money on the spot to Ashray Akruti – an NGO for the hearing impaired.
The success of the 2010 edition and the novelty of the concept led to an invitation from the AP Tourism Department. The 2011 edition was a resounding success with the participation of The Governor & The Chief Minister of AP. This event had the unique tradition of being the FIRST EVER Joy-of-Giving event of the year, having started at the mid-night of 2-October-2011. More than 500 riders and several volunteers took part in the event.
The third edition of The Peace Ride went to the birth state of Mahatma Gandhi – Gujarat! More than 100 people, including Gujarat Policemen and Police Commissioner Mr. Ajay Tomar, joined this 70+KMs ride in Ahmedabad which started on the Sabarmati river front and culminated at Sabarmati Ashram.
This year’s Peace Ride is the longest ride ever for our events exceeding 1200Kms. The Peace Riders will travel from Bapu Ghat in Hyderabad to Sabarmati in Ahmedabad covering 4 states and 8 cities. 44 signature riders will traverse these terrains and will be joined by 100 community riders in each city to celebrate 144 years of Mahatma Gandhi. Each signature rider will also raise up to Rs. 1 Lakh for various charitable causes through United Way. The last day of this event will inaugurate the Joy of Giving Week this year.
Raise awareness on the benefits of cycling & the need to support education
Raise funds for various charitable causes through United Way of Hyderabad & Daan Utsav
Reiterate Gandhian Principles
And of course to spread the motto of Peace Ride – Live the Conviction, Support Education!
