The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Royal Headline, Mr Suabiru Nurudeen, has donated $1,000 to the national paracycling team, Wheels of Fire, for their preparation towards the upcoming World Paracycling Track Championship in Milton, Canada.

The donation was a sponsorship package to the Wheels of Fire as an air ticket for one of the athletes to fly to Milton to represent the country in the UCI World Paracycling Championship.

The young entrepreneur made the donation when he visited the training session of the athletes last Saturday and was enthused about the preparation of the athletes ahead of the Paralympics.

Mr Nurudeen was optimistic that the local athletes would qualify for the Paralympic Games in Tokyo this year which will help reduce disability on the streets.

In an interview with Graphic Sports online, he said the disabled in Ghana had always been on his heart as he feels sad whenever he sees them on the street begging.

"I feel very sad and worried when I see the disabled on the streets. It looks like no one cares for them. I will do my best to support them in whatever dreams they have so it will reduce the disabled on the streets."

"The future of parasports looks bright with the amount of energy invested throughout the preparation; Allah will never allow our toil and effort to be in vain. He will surely see them through," he assured.

Mr Nurudeen urged the athletes to work hard to qualify for the Paralympics as he is ready to provide a sponsorship package for parasports to aim high.

A 10-man contingent, made up of seven athletes and three officials of the national paracycling team is scheduled to travel to Canada to participate in the UCI Para World Track Championship qualifier to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics from January 24 to February 3.
