Weʼre raising £8,000 to help fund a pair of carbon running blades for Tinkesh Kaushik
- 14 days to go
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Tinkesh was 9 years of age when an accidental electrocution injury caused him to lose both legs and one arm. He is determined to be independent, fulfill his love of sports and to inspire others with his determination. He would desperately like a pair of Carbon running blades but there is no government funding available for these in India.

Thank you to everyone for your amazing support of our campaign. We have already raised £1,140.00 but are still as determined as ever to raise our total amount. We need to raise £14,000 to cover the cost of the blades and the sockets but another £8,000 in addition to what we have already raised will bring us a step closer.
