Shubham Yadav, a young athlete hails from Kaithala village in Bulandshahr district. Though belonging to a normal farmer family, he had born interests in sports since his childhood. He used to play different sports but his loved running and making journeys around the village.
It was in around 2012 that a coach from Bulandshahr district itself, who had visited his village at that time, luckily caught him making races with his friends and succeeding 20-25 kms easily. The coach somehow realized the hidden runner athlete in him and thought of nurturing his skills further. Shubham started visiting a sports stadium in Bulandshahr where that coach gave him all instructions to develop himself as a proper and better athlete.
As expected, Shubham cleared following events in first attempt, making his family and coach proud:
School State – 2nd position [2 min]
2 times School National – 1st position [1.59 min] and 2nd position [2.01 min]
School Asia – [1.58] 1st
Then, it was understood that Shubham had to start next level training but due to limited resources and financial drawbacks, things couldn’t turn better. Then, with the support of friends and relatives Shubham pulled himself out of the border and moved to Rohtak district of Haryana wherein he is presently located.
He is taking training at MDU University Campus but due to consistent financial limitations of the family, he is not getting proper diet and essentials that are usually required. Hereby, I’m opening this campaign for Shubham so that we all can come forward to help Shubham realize his goal to win accolades for his country. He’s preparing for under 19 – 800m and 1500 m!
This initial level support we’re going to extend him will build his base to avail further scholarships and next level achievements for his sports career.
Come, let’s make his dream come true…
This campaign is to raise support for an year's expenditure and the break up is as follow:
