I am Lakshmi Sai. Wish you all a Happy Festive Season and Happy New Year 2022 in advance. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of the Infinity Ride. I am super excited as it will be a great opportunity to support para athletes or para Olympians.
I am into sports yoga, meditation and long distance running (10k, half marathons and marathons) for charities or cause. I have been pedaling since childhood and in the United States I used to do 40 to 50 miles. I always enjoy pedaling, walking and running on my own to enjoy nature. With this ride, I have to do this for five days (about 100 kms every day) which I have not done so far and it will be challenging.
What motivated me for this:
Having access to adequate facilities for Para-Athletes to increase their comfort in a game, helps regular practice and also helps in concentration and performance.
Sport is rapidly growing in our country in club, state and national levels. To serve the needs of our players and to facilitate them with right equipment to reach Para Olympics, we are looking for your support to raise money to purchase quality sport requirements.
We not only want to raise funds for their sport requirement, but also create awareness about supporting Indian Para-Athletes.
Why am I doing this?
The Aditya Mehta Foundation is an NGO that supports physically challenged people in our nation to pursue sports and supports them from the grass root level by providing counselling, training, equipment and helping them live a life with dignity. Since its 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 that helps the foundation support more such people, with the aim of unlocking their true potential and leading 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 disabilities 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 making a difference.
Heartfelt Thanks to You for your contribution!
