It is the time of the year when the entire Udayan Ghar Family gets their running shoes on and gathers to instill the zeal to put their best foot forward. Powered by adidas group, Udayan Care came together to celebrate its 9th adidas Group-Udayan Care Annual Sports Day on 29th March 2015.
Geared up in smart Reebok track suits, donated so lovingly by the adidas group, children from across our 13 Udayan Ghars were out on the ground, at the premises of the Banyan Tree School, our long term partners for this event. Mr. Dave Thomas, MD, and team adidas was there in full presence to cheer team Udayan on. With the chief guest, K.L. Rahul, the rising international cricketer, the kids were super enthusiastic for the 10 over cricket match that followed between the Udayan team on one side and adidas on the other. The boys from the Gurgaon home took away the spotlight with their brilliant performance based on a series of events in the epic Mahabharata. Their poise, etiquette and charm blew away the minds of all present. What followed were a series of racing events involving the children, our After-Care kids and the UC staff marking the end to a beautiful Sunday morning. To top it all at the end, Mr. Dave Thomas, M.D., adidas group donated a cheque of Rs. 2, 94,500/- towards the cause “To rejuvenate the rhythm of Life” of the children in need of Care & Protection.
With the end of yet another academic session, the Udayan Ghar kids brought with them another reason to celebrate and make merry as the overall pass percentage across all homes came out to be a staggering 99.9%, out of which 30% of the children scored above 70%. Shalinis too were not far behind, as 442 meritorious Shalinis successfully cleared their 11th standard across nine chapters while others are awaiting the results of their 12th Board examinations.
