Ride for Dad participation in memory of Mr. Saba Ravishankar
The Motor Cycle Ride for Dad event is held each year to raise funds for prostate cancer research. This event has raised over 1.7 million dollars. This year the event in Ottawa will be held on Saturday, June 02, 2012.
NCRTA's founding president Mr. Saba Ravishankar passed away in April, 2011 after a battle with prostate cancer which certainly has brought the need to find the cure for this dreaded decease close to our hearts. We would like to continue to participate in this year's Ride for Dad in memory of Ravishankar.
A group of friends of Ravi will be riding their bikes to participate in the fund raising under the team name "RAVISHANKAR SABA (Ottawa) " led by former NCRTA board member Mr. Alex Sivasambu.
