Dear Supporters,

I'm overwhelmed witnessing all your supporters donate with your hearts. However, I still need your help. It will be great if all your supporters could share my story with your friends and family on WhatsApp, Facebook. This will help me receive funds faster and so that I can buy Ottobock wheelchair. I'm still far away from my goal amount so I need your help. I request you to support and donate.


Story


I am Anthony John born and brought up in Mumbai, like every teen-agers even I had lot's of dream's and passion. I was very passionate about sports, I have played football for my college team and local club team's. 


In 2011 I meet with an road accident in which my spine was injured and I was left paralyzed waist down. I under went many treatment's in a hope that I would walk one day but no positive response, which led me down with depression.


As I was passionate about sports so I tried to get myself out of depression. In 2013 I played a national throw ball tournament where we won the final which boosted my passion against sports. In 2014 I started working as a Customer service executive in an MNC. 


In 2017 I was introduced to wheelchair basketball through one of my friend. I started practicing wheelchair basketball and tried to conquer it. In 2018 me and team got a chance to participate in the 5th national wheelchair basketball tournament held in Erode Coimbatore. We didn't won the game but we were the 1st team to create a historical match which last for almost an hour, wherein the total time for basketball match is 40 mins we played for an hour as the match was so tuff. I was been awarded as a an emerging young player of the tournament.I have also lead the Maharashtra team in cricket as a captain. In cricket I have also been awarded as a best batsmen for the Tri-series held Mumbai between Maharashtra,Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. This not all, being a basketball and cricket player I'm a marathon runner as well. I have participated in Tata Mumbai marathon of 2.5km, swami Vivekananda marathon of 5km and looking forward to participate in a 10km marathon which are held in Chennai.


As Mumbai is a fast living and a crowded city where traveling from one place to another takes a lot of time. As I'm a wheelchair user so I need to travel either with taxi or cab (Ola & Uber) which is a bit of expensive. So if I have a good and a well modified wheelchair which can help me travel through an auto rickshaw which could cut down my lot of expense. 


However, at present, my mobility is restricted due to non-availability of a good wheel chair. I cannot afford to buy a good wheel chair like Ottobock. I would be grateful if you could kindly sponsor an Ottobock wheelchair for me. This would help me in continuing my basketball practice and cricket practice as, I am aiming to be one of the top players in the Indian Contingent, for various international events.
