Above Knee Amputee want to run with Blade.Enable the differently abled

Met with a hit and run accident in August 2011 and lost right leg 18cms above knee. My company sponsored the first prosthetic leg and ran the first 10km marathon in May 2012.
Where a lot of people give up or lose hope , I  with the help of Maj DP Singh finished the run in 2hours 22 min.

I also did skydiving from 14k feet without my prosthetics in Atlanta , USA while on business trip.

Purpose to run : there are very rare above Amputee runners. People stare at prosthetics and differently abled people. They show sympathy or clap for an achievement. But the buck stops there. There's no further encouragement or awareness spread. I want to run & spread awareness on the possibilities by an amputee. I want to eradicate the stereotypes about differently abled people in my country. I want to run again but i dont have funds to afford a blade foot and a knee joint which cost around 7,73,000 INR. Please help me run & cycle miles. If possible in the long term, my goal is to open an amputees training center where differently abled people get fitness trained and achieve goals.
