Flash forward a year.
Vivek has now lost more than 50 kilos!
As the son of Late Dr Sita Bhateja, and both as a member of the family and an employee of Sita Bhateja Speciality Hospital, Vivek was weaned on the philosophy of giving. It came as no surprise when he decided he wanted to give back to society through his passion for cycling. And so Vivek, decided to ride the Tour of the Nilgiris as a charity rider. He had big shoes to fill alright, considering last year’s Sita Bhateja Speciality Hospital charity rider Gautam Raja raised 1.2 lakhs. Vivek was on a mission to better that.
And so he did!
Through his charity ride, Vivek raised nearly 2.5 lakh rupees which will go towards a new free spine surgery programme at Sita Bhateja Speciality Hospital. Read more about it on the next page.
