To commemorate the 77th Birthday of His Holiness Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, 70 members of the Dawoodi Bohra Community in Singapore covered a total distance of 770 kilometers by bicycle along the East Coast Parkway on Sunday, 29th November 2020. The cycling event was also held as part of the SG United Initiative in the spirit of ‘Together We Can Brave the New’ and to raise awareness about Mental Health and exercise as a way to achieve overall wellness.
To ensure compliance with social distancing rules, participants arrived in groups of 5 at an interval of 20 minutes between each group before setting off down the same route. All participants and members of the community got together on Zoom to flag off the first team. A young participant aged 12 said, ‘I enjoyed myself cycling through the beautiful park and more so that we did this as a community. I certainly want to go cycling every weekend with my dad now.’
