Olympic bronze medal winner Mary Kom meets the Combodian Cyclist, Mark Ellsion to convey her support for his fundraising initiative.
Mary Kom who has always been supportive towards the cause of Women Empowerment & Education of the girl child, personally met the 42 year old Englishmen, Mark Ellison to convey her good luck last October 2012.
Mark is raising funds through his continued support of ‘Around India Cycle Challenge’ which had started from 2 Jan 2012.
From 17th Oct Mark will be heading north starting from Kolkata to Himachal Pradesh and heading further up north through Khardunga pass facing the challenges of extreme terrains and steep incline.
Shabana says, “I am happy that Mark is undertaking this trip to raise funds for projects in India and delighted that he has chosen my NGO Mijwan Welfare Society that works for empowering the girlchild in rural India to be a beneficiary. I find it very moving that individuals make rigorous demands on themselves to be of service for society.I firmly believe in Gandhiji's dictum ' Be the change you want to see in the world'' that's what Mark is doing. More power to him”.
