We raise funds for Green Memorial Hospital to rebuild and develop medical services


Each year over forty cyclists from across the globe participate in a bike ride from Colombo, Sri Lanka's capital city, to the war-devastated Jaffna Peninsula. The journey begins on the 2nd of March and will end three days later, after cycling for 480 km. During this time, the weather in Sri Lanka will be extremely hot and humid; because of this, we would have to start cycling at 4:00 AM each day and stop by 11:00 AM. We will use the donations and sponsorships we receive to redevelop the Green Memorial Hospital, purchasing medical equipment and providing valuable and continuous medical services to the local community.

We gladly welcome all generous donations and appreciate your kindness.

About the charity


Verified by JustGiving

RCN 1113439
The Ride4Ceylon Team has its nucleus in a group of friends from St Thomas’ College in Colombo, Sri Lanka, now established among the Sri Lankan diaspora community overseas. Passionate to support their troubled homeland, and to give Sri Lankan children of tomorrow the opportunities they had enjoyed, the Old Boys – with other alumni, international friends and contacts – came up with the idea of a charity cycle ride from Colombo to Jaffna. The cycle ride recreates the sport, fun and bonding that marks the Old Boys’ connection, while also providing a visible means to attract support. Symbolically, by traversing the island from Colombo to the war-devastated north – it offers a journey of heart-rending beauty, healing and hope. The R4C2022 organising committee would like to thank the brand ambassadors Dan Norton, Jen Orr, Pia De Girolamo and Russel Arnold for their support.
