E- car Rally

After the success of last two years' Spinal Injury Electric Vehicle Rally, the third E-car rally is going to be held on 18 June 2011. With the aim of supporting two important causes- electric vehicle promotion and spinal injury treatment, the rally will start from Maitighar Mandala and travel to Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) at Saanga. Along with 59 Revas that are running in the country, the rally also seeks participation from other electric vehicles- Safa Tempos and Chinese electric scooters. All the proceeds from the event will go towards supporting indigent patients who will receive free and discounted rehabilitation services at SIRC.
