I am KR Krishnakumar. Five years ago, I had an attack of dengue and chikungunya and I became almost immobile. When various treatments did not help, I tried cycling along with yoga and I recovered fully.
What motivated me for this:
I have been into long distance cycling for the past 4 years and it has helped build my endurance level and remain fit at the age of 59. I am amazed at how the Aditya Mehta Foundation is rebuilding the lives of people who had lost all hopes after losing their limbs in accidents; more importantly, how they have created world class para-atheletes.
I am excited to do this 670km AMF Infinity Ride 2021 with the para-cyclists and to raise funds so that these para-athletes can bring medals for India in the next Para Olympics. Thank you so much for making me a part of this ride.
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.
