Iā€™m an above knee amputee, one leg cyclist, and secured 4th position in hand cycling in the para Asian cycling championship. I have also participated in para mountaineering climb mt. Bhagirathi in 2019 August with the support of AMF and BSF

AMF supports me in all ways possible and encourages people with disabilities to pursue para-sports.

During pandemic times- covid 2020 when the whole nation is on hold, AMF gives hope to para-athletes and this year as we are going to cover the nation from Kashmir to Kanyakumari by cycle and I’m very excited to be a part of this strong team.

Why am I doing this?

The Aditya Mehta Foundation is a NGO that supports physically challenged people in our nation to pursue sports and support them from the grassroot level by providing counseling, training, equipment and help them to live a life with dignity. In the last five years the foundation has supported a surplus of 150 para-athletes with prosthetic limbs, specialized sports equipment, and sponsorships. This sort of support costs anywhere in between Rs 40,000/- to Rs. 5Lakhs per person. Many of these para athletes who seek support from the foundation have won more than 80 International medals for our country in various International Games. The Infinity Ride is a fundraising ride which helps the Foundation to support more such people, with the aim of

  • Helping more and more physically challenged people unlock their true potential and fulfill their true potential and lead more fulfilling lives, and
  • Putting up a strong Indian Contingent at the 2020 Paralympics.

This year the Infinity Ride 2020 , starts in November, from the northern state of Kashmir to the southern most part of India, kanyakumari ! I’m excited and honoured and eagerly looking forward to be a part of this experience.
