every superhero wears a funny costume or a cape. For me, the real superheroes
are differently abled men and women, who push themselves to overcome their
physical limitations every single day.
To honour the spirit of these indomitable heroes, I
am participating for the 2nd time in
the Mumbai Marathon's Dream Run to raise Rs. 5 lakhs for
a cause that I deeply relate to. The
rehabilitation, education, training and generation of employment for the
differently abled youth.
a cancer survivor and above knee amputee myself, this issue is very close to my
heart. I was 22 when I lost my left leg to bone cancer and over the next few
years with my parents' support, I worked hard on regaining my physical mobility
This firsthand experience made me realise how
difficult and challenging it is for others with disability, who do not have the
support or opportunities I have had.
By participating in the Dream Run, I aim to challenge
myself and to raise funds for others who are differently-abled. I am supporting National Society for Equal
Opportunities for the Handicapped India (NASEOH) - a Mumbai-based NGO,
which will use the funds raised through the Mumbai Marathon, to rehabilitate
and create livelihoods for youth with disabilities in rural Maharashtra, India.
My aim is to raise Rs
5 lakhs for NASEOH and I cannot do it without your
support and encouragement. Help me make a change and enable these deserving
people to build a life of independence, dignity and financial security.
