Fundraising

As PTRC has grown, members and students have
worked hard to raise funds to support the work that
the organisation is doing. Some of the fundraising events are:

The Mumbai Marathon

PTRC's very first venture in fundraising was in January 2006, with its participation in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon which was a huge success. A total of 202 participants ran/walked in the Marathon for PTRC.

Every year we have dedicated participants who h train hard at raising funds at PTRC. We have participated in 8 Marathons till date and are greatly encouraged by the tremendous response that we continue to receive from friends and well-wishers.


PTRC-organised Events

PTRC also organized the following fundraising events in Mumbai:

 

• Musical Evening with Tara Kumaravelu

This event with the young and talented singer, Tara Kumaravelu, was held in 2010 at The Alexandra Girls' English Institution. It was greatly enjoyed by young and old alike, and sowed the seeds for future events.

• Concert by Usha Uthup

In 2012, PTRC organized a concert by the renowned Usha Uthup, at the NCPA's Tata Theatre in Mumbai. Titled 'Windmills of the Mind', this evening drew a full house and was PTRC's first public fundraising event on such a scale. As always, Usha Uthup charmed the audience and had everyone tapping their feet and clapping all the way to the end of the show.

We hope to continue organizing more such fundraising events in future as well.
