Dear All,


Hope you all enjoying your beautiful life.

It’s very difficult to believe myself that 2,600 great souls across the globe committed themselves “For The Cause”  of UN Sustainable Goals ( The Global Goals)  and achieved 8Million Kms and going strong to break it’s own records.   My hearty thanks to each and every one of them on behalf of GLD Movement, FTC.

My special thanks to Suthakaran and family, Balaji, Senthil, Karpagavalli, Saravana Babu, Prem, Visagan, Vinod, Rajesh kanna and family, Rama, Sumathi, Rangaraju, Ashok, Sabari, Gopikrishnan, Gowri, Buvana, Rajenthiran, Manoj, Shankar Anand, Neeraj, Karthik, Sundar, Suthat, Mocquant, Phanikumar, Lingaraju, Sony Paul Peter, M.Mahendran, Vishnu Priyanka, Team Gamesa, Theni and many of them not mentioned here for supporting this initiative initially with lot of positive energy.

 FTC and It’s Journey:

The idea FTC (For The Cause) was born during 2012 as an initiative to spread positive message to public through various activities like walk, run, cycling, photography, writing.   But that time it was only three to five of us go for cycling / running / walking to explore water resources in and around place where we live.   Then it’s limited to the special day activity.    During second half of 2015, restarted this activity at my new location and adopted “United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals”  as main theme to spread among public.

The first person to join me at new location is Suthakaran then we got lot of support from colleagues, friends and family members.    Everyone of them chosen their own “global goal(s)” to support and the activity through which they support for year 2016 and beyond.    Then we got info about Endomondo (personal activity tracker app), which helped us to connect virtually across the globe.

While we initiated, we thought we might achieve 50,000km in this year as a team.  But today we crossed 8 million km for the cause.    I knew, it brought lot of changes in many of our life during this 300 + days.  Personally, I feel proud for restarting this initiative for many reasons.   Few reasons are,  it’s always guideline for my actions,  give direction, improved physical and mental strength, determination, commitments.  I started with the aim of 2016km (walk, run and cycling) and spread the global goals atleast to 1,000 people.   But, I got confident to raise my goal to 2516km within few weeks.  Today, the fact is the revised goal also achieved during 3rd week of August.   Now my  journey continue beyond 3100km as on 20th of Nov’16.

As a volunteer and founder of FTC, let me take this opportunity to thank 2600+ participants across the globe for taking FTC milestone to new heights.    Next question is, how to thank these selfless souls?   In our way,  I’ll be dedicating all my next 30 x 10km (walk, run, cycle), 1 HM, 25 Poems.  Also theme for month Dec’16 will be “Month For Thanks Giving” and “Global Citizens”.   Thank you everyone from bottom of my heart.
