GoSports Foundation lends major support to Indian Paralympians
India's presence at the Paralympics in Rio has been greatly boosted thanks to the support of GoSports Foundation, which is the only Indian non-profit to support top para athletes with their sporting requirements.
The Para Champions Programme was started in 2015 to bring structure, planning and vision to the Indian Paralympic movement.
It has supported 18 elite athletes with disabilities. These include support for training, travel and accommodation for international competitions for the athletes and their escorts, equipment and gear, medical consultation and high performance training.
GoSports says that India has lagged behind as compared to other countries in terms of recognizing the needs and achievements of para athletes, something it is determined to change.
GoSports is working in partnership with IndusInd Bank and Sony Pictures Networks India.
