A handful of young enthusiasts had begun a journey-a mission to accomplish their creation, a sense of identity that would enable them to integrate themselves and thus Vivekananda Park Athletic Club came into existence and launched upon its carrier. At the initial stage when the Club was struggling hard against various odds to preserve it’s mere existence, the tireless efforts of some devoted members came as a welcome relief and it enabled the Club to be founded on sound footing.

To stand by the distressed we distributed clothes to the women & children of the poorest section of the society. In this connection, we provided 30 Rickshaw pullers with new clothes and Accidental Insurance Policy. We arranged Blood Donation Camp where 40 Donors donated blood. Besides that, about 10 members of our club donated blood at different occasions. We organised Health Check-up Camp where people got different tests and investigations done free of cost. We also arranged Eye-Camp where 20 people were given spectacles free of cost. We also sent clothes, medicine and financial aid for the victims of the ‘Ayela Disaster’”, informs one of the important members of the club.
