A group of Sikh motorcyclists will hit the road for a trip across Canada in support of the Make-A-Wish foundation this weekend.

Legendary Sikh Riders will depart from Mile Zero in Victoria on Saturday July 17th at 12 p.m., which will commence their cross-Canada ride raising funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The group intends to project the values of their Sikh faith while pursuing their love of the open road and doing so for charity.

Recently, they had a solidarity ride supporting the Indigenous community following the confirmation of 215 unmarked graves in Kamloops; and last year they rode to support farmers in India, who have been protesting against controversial agricultural laws.

Their 2020 road trip across Canada was postponed due to COVID-19.

This year, they decided to raise funds for the Make a Wish Foundation, who grant wishes to children with critical illnesses.

“As a group we voted on facilitating the next generation, which is our children, because children are the future of every nation and race,” said the Legendary Sikh Riders’ website.

“We decided to go with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Canada and our trip will take us across Canada asking for donations.”

Any funds received will be distributed towards each province that they collect money from.
