Pragya's Duathlon 2020

Fundraising for Calcutta Rescue Fund
raised of £1,000 target


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Pragya has decided to do a duathlon this year in a local park after the UK Kids' Triathlon event got cancelled because of COVID-19. She has given herself an extra challenge for doing it on three consecutive days 20th, 21st and 22nd June in Derby. 

She is very eager to help those less fortunate children in Kolkata by raising fund for Calcutta Rescue. Pragya is really upset after watching what the Cyclone Amphan has done to the city of Kolkata on top of COVID-19 crisis. 
She is deeply motivated to support the poorest of the poor in Kolkata. 

We, Pragya's parents are always very eager to serve the city we are originally from and we had been talking about this for long, trying to find the appropriate means to give back to Kolkata. There are lots of areas that the city needs support for improvement and doing something for Kolkata from thousands of miles away seems to be a big challenge. So, when we came to know about Calcutta Rescue, we got very inspired by the good work that the charity is doing for the under-privileged in the city. Getting the opportunity to do something for Kolkata through Calcutta Rescue will be highly gratifying for us.

Please visit the website of Calcutta Rescue for more information.

Pragya will run and bike the distance as per the UK Kids' Duathlon guide on each of the three days.
