Nagpur, april 23
On February 28, ultra cyclist Dr. Amit Samarth completed his epic journey Ride Across India and in the process he broke the previous world record by a massive 38 hours. Dr. Amit Samarth completed the grueling distance of 6000 kms (Mumbai – Chennai – Kolkata – Delhi - Mumbai) in 13 days 9 hours and 50 minutes at the Toll Collection centre at Vashi, Navi Mumbai.
However this ride was not undertaken only with a view to create a World Record. Dr. Samarth had his mind fixed on raising funds for the sports project of Lok Biradari Prakalp. People were encouraged to donate generously for the cause.
Crowdera, an online portal for fund raising ran the campaign for collection of funds for Lok Biradari Prakalp.
During his ride Dr. Samarth went live on social media like Facebook and Instagram many times and urged people to contribute generously to this cause.
Team Ride Across India has announced that they have raised Rs 9 lakh for Lok Biradari Prakalp. Team Ride Across India has thanked all the people and organizations who contributed generously towards this campaign.
