Thane-Kalyan MP Attends As Chief Guest:

Dr. Shrikant Shinde, Member of Parliament from Thane-Kalyan attended the para games event as the chief guest while Rotary District Governor Arun Bhargava was the guest of honour for the event. Assistant Commissioner Prasad Khairnar from the Suburban District Social Welfare Department also attended the event.

Pramod Sampat, member of the Rotary Club of Borivali and Advisor for the Para Sports Games, said, “A social welfare organisation had been organising such a para sports event in the town. We wanted one of the schools for specially abled children in Goregaon to be participated but since the suburban school could not be included, we decided to organise a separate event for the suburban schools.”

Apart from Rotary Club, many individuals and organisations joined the noble cause by sponsoring for sports apparels, gifts, certificates, medals as well as food, snacks and water for the children.
