Project :           Cause Cyclothon

Cause Cyclothon- an initiative of Rotary Worli was started in 2014 to promote the various projects undertaken by it.

The first project under banner of Cause Cyclothon was partnered with Sumit Patil of Team Agni to build awareness of the Jaipur Foot project under the tag line ‘One Jaipur Foot for every mile of the RAAM”.

The cause was promoted by sponsoring Ultra Cyclist Sumit Patil at the 2014 Race across America (RAAM) - the World’s toughest Cycle Race.  Sumit was the 2nd Indian to participate since 32 years since RAAM started.

Mirza Saaib Beg (lawyer by profession employed with SEBI), Sumit Patil & Pranaya Mohanty (software engineer employed with TCS) will be the cycling face of CAUSE CYCLOTHON and would be spearheading this program.

Cause Cyclothon 2015 was to assist  RAHAT MANZIL, an orphanage in Srinagar.
