Every Great Malnad Challenge event works in the sidelines to benefit the less privileged. One of the key areas of focus is towards encouraging education among the underprivileged students. On a similar note, the theme for GMC2017 is encouraging rural children to stay in school and complete high-school education.

BAG-TO-SCHOOL is an ICYCLE initiative through GMC2017 where 150 school bags will be donated every day, at Government schools in the Malnad region, for all 7-days of the GMC2017 event. That adds up to just over ONE THOUSAND school bags in total.

To help GMC2017 achieve its goal of encouraging education among the rural children, a few cyclists have come forward to be the ‘Charity Riders’. These Charity Riders are tirelessly working towards promoting this BAG-TO-SCHOOL initiative. We are proud to present the following cyclists as the official ‘Charity Riders’ for GMC2017:

Capt. Pushpanjali Gautam

Ms. Sandhya Venkatesh

Ms. Varsha Shetty

Pria Darshini
