Rise Derby

Mumbai , Mahalaxmi Race Course

As a pre-cursor to the concert, a fundraiser in the form of a derby race was held on the 14th of December, 2014, at Mahalaxmi Race Course, Mumbai, hand-in-hand with the New Hope Foundation. The proceeds were donated to the Kamla Mehta School for the blind, Dadar, Utkarsha Mandal for the deaf and mute, Vile Parle, Children's Aid Society, Matunga, Pragati Kendra Institute for the Mentally Challenged Persons, Matunga and St. Galies School, Bandra.

The event was opened by a performance by the students of SIWS College, Wadala. It was followed by stellar performances by the blind, deaf, mute, and mentally challenged children from the Kamla Mehta School for the blind, Utkarsha Mandal and Pragati Kendra. These included acts such as a march past, rope malkhamb, and gymnastics which left the audience spellbound.

However, the derby couldn't be conducted on the very same day due to unpredictable weather conditions. It was held on the 18th of December, 2014.
