My name is Ganga and I am a core team member at the Aditya Mehta Foundation. I have been taking care of its back-end operational activities since the past six years. I’m proud to state that I happen to be one of the top fundraisers for the foundation.
During the Infinity Ride period, I take it upon myself to raise funds that are vital in keeping the foundation and its work alive and running. This year is no different. I intend to raise Rs. 2 lakhs, that will support a few budding Para-Athletes to live their dream of participating and winning at International Para Sporting events.
I’ve been into long distance cycling for about five years now and feel that it is a good detox for the mind.
What motivated me for this:
I am doing this ride to raise funds for AMF. Sports should become a source of strength to specially abled and India has to go a long way to become sensitive towards to the specially abled.
Why am I doing this?
The Aditya Mehta Foundation is a NGO that supports physically challenged people in our nation to pursue sports and supports them from the grassroot level by providing counseling, training, equipment and helps them live a life with dignity. Since their inception the foundation has supported more than 150 para-athletes with prosthetic limbs, specialized sports equipment, and sponsorships. This sort of support costs anywhere in between Rs 40,000/- to Rs. 5 lakhs per person.
A proud moment for AMF is that many of these para athletes have won more than 100 plus national and international medals for our country. The upcoming Infinity Ride is a fundraising ride which helps the foundation support more such people, with the aim of unlocking their true potential and lead more fulfilling lives, while putting up a strong Indian Contingent at the 2024 Paralympics.
AMF is now geared up for our Infinity Ride 2021 – Hyderabad to Gokarna from December 22nd to 27th 2021. The theme for this ride, while promoting para-sports, is ‘Say No to Drugs’ and to adopt children with disability to train them in para-sports.
Together, we can all help make a difference in the world of Para-Athletes! We are excited and raring to ride! Are you?!
Contribute to make a difference.
