And few districts children were amazed to travel in buses as they never had an opportunity to travel. All the children visited Chennai for the first time. A special thanks to all the Sponsors who made the entire show a great success. Our Patron who stood by us behind the screens always motivating us in the most positive way. But , because of him this AK Foundation would not have been created. It was our Patron’s dream to bring in the rural children from all the district of Thamizh Nadu and trace out their talent and mould them accordingly . Yes , the children who faired well had been refered to the concerned district – Sports Development Authority of Thamizh Nadu. Long live AK Foundation!!! “We bridge the Gap” to the rural children who ace in Athletics, so that they will participate in 2016 Olympics.
