RISE AND SHINE FUND
Rise & Shine fund will help those who want to rise practicing extreme/gravity sports for the overall growth who later will become a role model by growing themselves and the community.
We believe no professional career is a waste of time specially when it is about sports which has direct benefit in so many aspects of your existence but unfortunately, we don't give much importance to physical fitness.
We are proud to say that we are working towards creating an environment where we see how important a playground is and no sports is less than any other career goals. See our pictorial about areas to which sports can contribute
We want to make these sports affordable and approachable for those who really find belonging here and help them in every possible way to work on their ambitions and dreams.
This fund will help people from under-privileged backgrounds, of all gender in their overall growth until they find themselves in a space where they have become totally independent altogether growing with the sports.
Help us in achieving this vision.
Congratulations to the 2022 recipient of The Rise and Shine Fund – we’ll be sharing more about each of their journeys throughout 2022.
