About the project :
Ankur is a Delhi boy who loves Mumbai and is presently a banker based out of Chennai. He has been associated with financial markets division of DBS India, which he joined in 2014 post his MBA from XLRI Jamshedpur. Ankur sincerely believes that no one should miss out on his/ her talent due to lack of resources. With this thought and a regret that he himself has never been good at sports, he decided to associate with Garlanding India 2.0 initiative. He would be riding his Royal Enfield Classic 350 which he has named as Robin, after Robin Scherbatsky.
Ankur is one of the four riders who would initiate the journey of Garlanding India 2.0 in south. Garlanding India 2.0 will overall involve a core team of 16 volunteer bikers. 4 sets of 4 riders each will ride 4000 kms each in 4 different segments (South, North, East, West) covering all of India. The first segment will be the Southern Spin, covering the South of India, and will flag off on December 19 2017. The other three segments will be in January, February and March of 2018.
We aim to collect Rs 2 crores for 4 Sports Academies: Track Legend PT Usha’sUsha School of Athletics, Boxing Great Mary Kom’s Mary Kom Regional Boxing Foundation, Wrestling Champion YogeshwarDutt’s Wrestling Akhara and finally Olympic Gold Quest, the Foundation started by Indian Sporting Legends Geet Sethi and Prakash Padukone. To fight malnourishment, we have chosen Ekjut, an NGO doing great work in the area of infant and mother nutrition, as the 5th beneficiary.
We also aim to collect Rs 3.2 lacs i.e. 20000 for each of the 16 riders to cover their expenses. Hereby, we invite you to donate – to beneficiaries and ride of Ankur, who’s up for this great cause. You can track the live location of riders on all our social media pages and our website. You can also volunteer to offer a place to stay overnight for the riders if your place coincides with the route of riders of southern spin. The route of the onward journey is displayed alongside the live tracker.
Come, contribute! Be a part of this exciting endeavour. Every donor will receive a small reward commemorating the event.
