Dear All,

Happy to announce that Rajkumar is finally on his way to Miami, USA.

He joins me in thanking all of you who have contributed so generously to his cause. He has worked tirelessly to come to this point on his way to make his dream come true. He carries your good wishes with him on his journey to make India proud.

Thank you all once more!

Rajkumar was born into a poor family in a small village in Uttar Pradesh on Jan 11, 1993. He is 23 years old.
When he was 4 or 5, he fell from the roof of a house and crashed to the ground, landing on this head. He was subsequently diagnosed with a condition that is termed "EXTREMELY LOW I.Q. WITH HYPERACTIVITY".
He has always been fond of sport, and in the early years he excelled in any sport he took up, be it Soccer or basketball or whatever. He soon came to the notice of the Special Olympics Association of India, who told him that they would like him to try his 'hand' at ICE SKATING as they had no one to represent India in that event at the coming Special Olympics.
Rajkumar took to Ice Skating like a fish to water and, to cut a long story short, he won, for India, the Gold Medal at the Figure Skating event at the Special Olympics held in South Korea in 2013.
Since then he has participated in several Ice Skating Championships in India and abroad and won many events in the former.
Though the Gold Medal has won him acclaim and laurels, financially it has brought Rajkumar little or no gains. Today he sells imitation jewellery on the footpaths of Paharganj, Delhi, to finance his interest in the sport.
He is in dire need of funds to finance his dream of representing India at the regular Winter Olympics in 2018. He needs the money to train abroad, in the US, as India has no such worthwile facility. This is an expensive, though attainable goal. With your help, we can achieve it.
The costs would include the airticket to the US and back, board and lodging there and Coaching fees and fees for use of the Ice Skating Rink. This works out to approximately Rs. 7lacs for a 3-month session.
Needless to say, the more he trains, the better he will get, the better will be his chances of winning laurels for our country! He could do with as many 3- month sessions as he can afford! But the first will be a start.
Thank you.
