I am Krupakar and I have been cycling regularly since the past two years, long distance cycling since the past one-and-a-half year and I have done three 100 kms rides. Cycling is a great experience and every ride has a new learning.The Infinity Ride is something where we are giving back to the society with the feeling of being a responsible Indian citizen.
What motivated me for this:
I have been volunteering and been associated with AMF for the past two years and am participating in this ride to raise funds and to support para-athletes of India through AMF. India is lacking proper support towards para-athletes and AMF is the only NGO working towards it; and I’m very proud to be associated with it. I was introduced to AMF through my friend Praveen and got inspired with the foundation’s aim.
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.
