Ride for Dad participation in the memory of Mr. Saba Ravishankar
Our founder president Mr. Saba Ravishankar passed away on April 24th 2011, after a short but courageous battle with prostate cancer.
NCRTA was trying to find ways to remember Mr. Saba Ravishankar and one of the avenue was to help the organizations that help alliviate the cancer patients.
The Motor Cycle Ride for Dad event is held each year to raise funds for prostate cancer research. Last year, this event raised 1.7 million dollars. This year the event in Ottawa will be held on Saturday June 4th. As you all know, NCRTA's founding president Saba Ravishankar passed away this April after a battle with cancer. We would like to participate in this year's Ride for dad event in memory of Ravishankar.
