Swapping the suit for lycra
Dr Kaushik Paul from our High Street Dental Practice in Burton-on-Trent is taking part in an exciting charity adventure and asks for your support.
I’ve been part of the Small Steps Charity for the last seven years. It is a fundraising charity that aims to raise awareness and money for important projects around the world, which are not yet supported by larger mainstream organisations.
Made up of doctors, dentists and engineers – mostly from the Birmingham / Solihull area – we organise a series of events and, due to the group’s passion for cycling and fitness, we have been doing lots of bicycle rides in recent years.
I have usually offered logistical support, but this year I’ve decided to swap my four wheels for two and my suit for lycra. I am participating in a four-day bike ride in the Canadian Rockies, raising money for our project of 2019 – MAHAN. This not-for-profit organisation provides preventive and curative community health and hospital services to 300,000 farmers in Melghat, Maharashtra, India.
I believe my friends in the Small Steps Charity are an incredible bunch of people who selflessly give up their time to raise funds for amazing causes. I’m very proud to be joining them on their bikes this year! All endeavours are completely self-funded, so every donation goes straight to the very worthy cause.
A lot of people in Rodericks will know me to be fairly inactive in terms of exercise – for me to do a four days bike ride may well surprise you, and rightly so! It’s a really big deal for me and I would be so grateful if you could support our venture and renumerate me fairly for my pain!
Donations of absolutely any size would be hugely appreciated and will help the MAHAN organisation in the life-changing work that it does. Thank you in advance and wish me luck!
