How would you like to enable blind and amputee cyclists, alongside able-bodied riders, to take on a challenge that the world told them was impossible? Between August 9 to 19, 2019, the Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation (ABBF) is endeavouring to take cyclists with and without disability on an inclusive tandem-cycling expedition from Manali to Khardung La—the highest motorable road in the world. We need you to donate to the epic cause of making this world a more inclusive and empathetic space by contributing generously to this campaign. What more? You can save taxes while changing the world—for all your donations, you will get an 80G certificate that will get you a tax exemption.
Last year, we took to the mountains with seven cyclists with disability and 10 able-bodied riders, creating history yet again. All our participants completed the expedition and stood proud on top of the world at 18,380 feet. Our accomplishment made history too (see our media coverage here and our last year's funding campaign here) and this year, we are all set to do it again with your support.
About M2K2019: From August 09–19, ABBF is all set to take a team of people, with and without disability, on a cycling expedition from Manali to Khardung La in Ladakh. During these 11 days, cyclists will push their limits of physical endurance and mental fortitude, forge relationships and build empathy. At its core, #M2K2019 is a chance for people to discover new perspectives, while simultaneously spreading the message of inclusion and accessibility. Everyone wins. Everyone goes home stronger. Everyone gets to live harder.
How will we use your donations for #M2K2019: Your donations will help us provide accommodation, food and living expenses to Persons with Disability from poor economic backgrounds, cover cycle maintenance costs, run support vehicles, arrange medical necessities, and cover the expenditure of our practice sessions throughout the months leading up to M2K2019. Your funds will give Persons with Disability the unique opportunity to truly experience inclusion through adventure sports, while helping ABBF raise money for future events this year.
We need you to support our goal of making this expedition a success. By donating as much as you can, you are helping truly imbibe the spirit of inclusion while adopting a new world view. Join us in this adventure, be a vanguard in this revolution and help change the way disability is perceived in society today.
