About this event

In India, close to 53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 12 are illiterate because they dropout of schools, it is either due lack of finance or lack of basic opportunity. Globally, education outcomes have improved but much has to be achieved in India.

UMEED 1000 Cyclothon is a unique awareness initiative that also raises funds to support Girl Child Education. Every year select set of cyclists cover a 1000 Kms to support the work of the non-profit partner, Udbhav School. In the past, the funds raised were used to set up two schools in Hyderabad for underprivileged communities.

In 2019, the cyclists will cover a 1000 Kms stretch from Udaipur to Amritsar via Delhi under the leadership of lead cyclist and Coach Jasmeet Singh Gandhi to raise funds.
