Background: As many of you readers might know, Vivek was the subject of a previous story . His transformation from a sickly young man weighing more than 125 kilos to that of a healthy, fit young man has been nothing short of remarkable. Vivek rode the Tour of Nilgiris last year . Despite his relative inexperience, Vivek did creditably but still wasn’t able to finish the entire tour. This year he is back to conquer it, the climb to Kalahatty in particular.
Vivek’s story was so inspiring that, as a charity rider, he was able to raise INR 300,000 which went towards initiating a Free Spine Surgery Program (called Giving Back) at Sita Bhateja Speciality Hospital. His efforts helped heal over 20 patients over the course of the last year. This year, he has set his sights even higher in this department too.
Complete the whole TfN with a respectable ranking. And to get strong enough and fast enough to qualify for the Spectrum Racing cycling team. But his biggest goal is to raise INR 500,000 towards the Free Spine Surgery Programme.
