    This fundraiser will benefit

    Young Athletes

    from Mamallapuram, Tamil Nadu

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Sivaraj B age 18, Harish M age 17, and Manikandan A age 17 from the fishing community of Mahabalipuram. To compete at National Level representing Tamil Nadu in the Skateboarding Championships in Chandigarh, Punjab this December 14th in the 17+ age category.

As they are in 12th and 11th standard in school, this opportunity will impact their school results, giving them a chance at a Sports Scholarship to University or a government job application, essentially life-changing. All 3 athletes are attending local government-run higher secondary schools and are studying through their native language Tamil.

This achievement shows a greater purpose to their parents, their peers, school, and community towards the value of skateboarding in their lives. Beyond a Sports Achievement, it will create ripples in the community to encourage younger athletes to take up sports and stay in school. They potentially change the life of their families through securing 3rd level education or employment and bring hope and great pride to their village.

The funds raised will be managed by Nithish Varun and cover for 3 athletes - Event registration, TN tracksuit, Insurance, RTPCR test, Travel - 1 way flight is 4 hours, return train is 37 hours via Delhi, 6 nights accommodation and food at the competition venue outside Chandigarh.
