AMF aims to help them reach their full potential in their chosen field of sports and help them have a self-sustaining life.
The Infinity ride is the annual signature ride of AMF, which raises much needed funds to help para athletes. The founder Aditya Mehta himself is a para athlete, and participated in the ride personally along with the other riders. Apart from having the most unique experience of their lives, the participants will each commit to raise a certain amount of money. They are supported amply by AMF to help them generate the funds.
