US$3,000.00raised of $24,000.00 goal goal
Our14-year-old son Haruki and I are living with ADHD. We are circumnavigating Sri Lanka (1190+KM/16-days) on our bicycles in this December to raise awareness and raise funds for NPO/NGO focusing on ADHD. Donate to make a life-changing impact.
is a neurobiological disorder that affects millions of people across their
lifespan. While an estimated 9.8% of children aged 3–17 and 6.8% of adults have
ADHD, there are still a lot of myths leading to confusion and doubt. ADHD is
highly manageable with proper diagnosis and treatment. By sharing information
and raising awareness, a difference can be made. While a handful of NGOs and
NPOs are admirably working with children with ADHD, very little is done to
raise much-needed awareness among
of children with ADHD
and primary school teachers. To that end, my
son and I are setting out to hold interactive workshops during our tour with a
panel of specialists who are currently working with children diagnosed with
experiences of living with ADHD
and its treatments, giving
teachers, parents, their children, and families reliable and practical
information that will resonate and hopefully change perceptions of ADHD.
Funds you donate + $ for $ match (up to US$24,000) from me goes to efforts of coordination of workshops, materials, logistics and accommodation for experts, parents, and teachers. Excess funds will be donated to an NGO in Sri Lanka that works with ADHD kids.
In last two decades, I’ve organized fund raising events both in Canada and in Japan and raised over $250,000. I’ve also built a fully furnished classroom for 30+ children who did not have sheltered classroom in rural Sri Lanka with my own money. In 2009 and 2010, I’ve raised $42,000 by organizing two bicycle tours from Tokyo to Sapporo and from Tokyo to Osaka. In addition to that I’ve participated in two multi-day extreme distance fund raising bike rides organized by Around the Pearl and The Knights in White Lycra and donated 10 wheelchair to Around the Pearl with my own money.
