Help Budhia Singh-(The Wonder Kid) To Get Back To The Running Track




Budhia Singh, who doesnot know the wonder kid of Odisha, who created history by running 65 kms at the age of 5. He also registered his name in the Limca Book of Record.

His story have been really different from the beginning, when his mother sold him for few thousand rupees during his early child hood and his former coach, Late Sri Biranchi Das discovered and adopted him. One day he discover his running skill and then the journey started. But God's wish was different, Mr. Biranchi Das was killed by a gangster and everything became dark all of a sudden.

The local govt couldn't do much for the extra ordinary child. and gradually everyone forgotten. The media stopped promoting him and Govt stopped caring. Its been many years now. He is 17yrs old but the passion for running is still alive in Budhia. He practices every day with a dream to bring a Olympic gold someday for the nation.

I personally know Budhia from his childhood being from the same Odia community but last few years when the govt took over, there were no news. Few months back a mutual friend called me and told about his current condition and we being an organisation who works to promote sports. We took this initiative.
His only demand was to get a good coach and some sponsor to meet his daily nutrition. We have arranged a world class coach named Ian Dexter, who has been training many athletes worldwide including national record holder Avdesh Nagar. We have now started the formal coaching.

Lets join hands to make his dream for a gold medal for the nation is a reality.

Few links below to know what all happened in the last year's...

Dear Supporters,

As you read in the story before, Budhia was trained under the English coach Ian. the mode of coaching was online, but after 4 months of evaluation, we found it is not very effective and Budhia needs someone to be with him physically, every day and guide him with real-time feedback. Our search for a good coach again started. After a lot of effort, I came across this great coach named Vijendra Singh (details below)

And after a detail discussion we found that it will cost around Rs 7-8L (which includes the education, nutrition, training, medical facility , accommodation etc). We wish we could send Budhia their but the amount looks very difficult as of now.

We also met Dr. Sunita Godara, (former marahon runner. 1992 Asian Gold medalist)  who runs Health & Fitness Trust, and trains in Delhi Skechers Go Run Club.

As of now Budhia used to take 2 days of free classes in the club, upon our request Dr. Sunita agreed to employ a coach for Budhia's regular training and she has given the below estimation to start with. With a believe "something is better than nothing" and with an ambition to Share Budhia's Olympic Dream, we are trying our best whichever ways possible.
