Enable more Naveen(s)
Thanks for the overwhelming response! I have extended the goal till race date. Support me in enabling more people to lead a quality life!
I'm turning 8! Yes it is eight years since my rebirth following a spinal cord injury in 2010. And I have not lived a life as enriched as I am living, since August 2017. I got myself a high quality wheelchair that has helped me life to my fullest potential. It has enhanced my lifestyle and health. A small change in my posture and seating changed the perspective completely. Yet at least 90% wheelchairs users in India use improper wheelchairs that damage health and lifestyle. I want to do my bit to end this plight.
Help me raise funds to empower 5 more wheelchair users at Kotak Wheelchair Marathon 2018. Support my campaign generously. And you will enrich their lives. I have a sponsor who is willing to match what I raise. So in our collective effort generates resources for 5 lives, 10 wheelchsair users will lead an Enriched, Empowered, Enabled lives.
Your contribution will also facilitate exposure to sports in the simplest form of running or wheeling, as persons with disability who are into sports tend to be more active, fit and healthy. By chipping in, you will become a part of their journey towards well being.
