Charity cricket matches for Alzheimer’s awareness
32 players divided into 4 teams played cricket for the cause of Alzheimer’s Awareness on 1st October at Croire Cricket Club. The match was organized by Last Man Stands Gurgaon, who raised funds for Samvedna Senior Care’s Alzheimer’s Awareness program.
Teams CIO, Gurgaon Giants, Palm Springs and Strikers participated in the Charity Knock Out Tournament. The first match was between Giants and Strikers. Man of the Match Saurabh Arora helped Strikers successfully defend the 170 target by taking 4 wickets. Second match was a close encounter between Palm Spring and CIOs. Anoop Kumar and Amit Mandar’s consistent hitting in the chase took the game away from Palm springs. CIO’s achieved the target quite comfortably.
The final was a one side affair which Strikers won easily with the help of some great batting and bowling display. All the players and umpires were given souvenirs after the match from Samvedna Senior Care.
The great thing about this event was that the collected fees from the match will be used for raising awareness about Alzheimer among underprivileged elderly. Samvedna Senior Care thanked Krish Chhatwal- LMS Gurgaon League Manager for coming forward for a noble cause.
