RideLondon-Surrey 100

On 30 July, the Jesuit Missions cycle team are taking to the streets of London to raise money for marginalised communities in India.

Grey Msonthi and Sebastian Cichocki will brave 100 miles of hot tarmac as they take on the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey cycle race. The route begins at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and takes in some of the most beautiful Surrey countryside on the way before ending on The Mall.

The cause

The most vulnerable families in India belong to the lower caste Dalit or tribal groups. In the Madurai province of South India, Jesuit Missions is constructing housing for 200 Dalit and tribal families. By providing safe accommodation with access to clean, running water and hygiene facilities, Jesuit Missions is ensuring that these families have the foundation they need to build lives of stability and dignity.

Each rider is hoping to raise £1000 for the project, enough for the two-person team to fund the construction of one house.

Richard Greenwood of Jesuit Missions says: “The ride is always a fun day out. But it’s also a great opportunity to support people in an extremely vulnerable situation. The money raised has a powerful impact.”
