Below is what Spoorthi has to say on Joining AMF family.
“I loved the idea behind AMF because, in India, Sports is not celebrated very well, except for Cricket. And when it comes to para-athletes, they are totally ignored though they are so very talented and capable of getting more laurels to our nation. This is a great opportunity to support them and also the Indian armed forces who have lost their limbs or arms fighting for us and for the nation. I have always had great respect for our armed forces and I feel really lucky for this opportunity to do something for them.
I would like to raise funds and help these heroes and do my bit.
I have never cycled before. So this is a herculean task for me. I am just learning now and this is a big challenge, but I am confident of overcoming my fear and making this a successful ride.”
