This ride was flagged of by the kids of Smile Foundation from Tusker Harley Davidson, Lavelle Road, Bangalore at around 8:30. Covering a stretch of 100 KM the ride was culminated at the Prestige Golfshire.

The resources raised by the HOGs’ through this ride will provide Education & Nutrition support for close to 100 under privileged kids for a year.
Speaking about this CSR initiative Srinivas Reddy, CEO & MD – Tusker Harley Davidson said, “When we have so much of inequality around us, it becomes an important responsibility of people like us to insure our best to the marginalized community. This campaign where the HOG’s have joined hands in raising resources and spreading awareness about the cause of education for every child to curb child labour is phenomenal and I thank all HOGs’ who came forward to benefit Smile Foundation’s initiative ”
The sensitization cum resource raising campaign involving all the HOGs’ in Bangalore is organised under ‘Celebrating Responsible Luxury’ initiative of Smile Foundation under which luxury brands from across the spectrum will join hands in putting a smile on every under privileged child’s face by ensuring a better future by gifting them with education.
