Manipuri youth to cycle 1,420 km from Mumbai to Delhi for cancer awareness

Imphal, October 10: 20-year-old Ji Ingocha Chingtham, a student from Manipur has started a solo cycling adventure from Navi Mumbai to New Delhi to encourage cancer patients and also to spread the message to stay fit.

Chingtham started his cycling adventure from Navi Mumbai to New Delhi on October 10. He hails from Khongjom Sapam Mayai Leikai in Manipur’s Thoubal district.

His ride was formally flagged off by the key functionaries of the Manipuri body based in Mumbai along with some cancer patients from Kharghar in Navi Mumbai.

He said that he was inspired by the slogan ‘Hum fit ho toh Indian fit’ ((If we are fit then entire India is fit) and he hopes to reach India Gate in Delhi on October 11 by riding his cycle in an average of 300 km per day.

It may be mentioned, Chingtham on April 2018 had cycled 3100 kms from Imphal to New Delhi in 23 days to spread the message of ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ throughout his cycle trip.
