Ride for Raja is an annual event held to commemorate the amazing life of Mandeep Singh Cheema, also known as Raja. Mandeep was a victim of a motorcycle accident that took place on September 16th, 2012 at the young age of 38. Mandeep's family and friends were left heartbroken with the sudden loss of their beloved Raja.
To celebrate and honour Mandeep's life, on June 23rd 2013, family and friends launched the Mandeep Singh Cheema Charitable Foundation (MSCCF). MSCCF's first event was a gala style event, which quickly pivoted to an annual motorcycle ride called Ride for Raja in celebration of Raja’s love for motorcycles. The Mandeep Singh Cheema Charitable Foundation is volunteer run and continues to grow due to the generosity and kindness of their partners and donors.
Bikers come together to enjoy a scenic ride in memory of Raja. The event day is filled with lots of excitement and activities to enjoy, there is fun for everyone in the family.
This year Ride for Raja celebrates its 10th year anniversary!
In partnership with Peel Children's Aid Foundation, Ride for Raja is thrilled to have our dear Raja's legacy continue.
The event will be held on Sunday, June 26th, 2022.
Registration is now OPEN!
Funds raised from this event will be used to support youth programs funded by Peel Children's Aid Foundation.
Raja's personality was fun, loving, caring and giving. He would drop everything to go help someone in need and we decided that we owed it to him to keep this part of him alive. Through the development of MSCCF, the goal is to celebrate Mandeep's life, while helping to provide youth involved with Peel Children’s Aid Society and the child welfare system to gain greater access to educational supports and employment opportunities.
