The Maharashtra Dyslexia Association (MDA) is a non-profit organization founded by parents  in response to a widely felt need to advocate for the rights of these students with Specific Learning Disabilities (Dyslexia).  MDA is committed to ensuring that these students receive an appropriate education within the mainstream, and are not forced to drop out of school.  MDA  works closely with the State Education Department to promote a better understanding of these students’ needs and also provides a wide range of quality services for affected students and their families.

Due to our untiring efforts, several thousand children have benefitted over the years, and gone on to achieve their inherent potential in various fields.  But many more need our help, for whichwe are turning to you.

The Mumbai Marathon presents us with an ideal opportunity to tap into the generous spirit of the city and helps us raise the much-needed funds for our various activities.  We are counting on your kind support to help us do this once again during the 2015 Marathon.

Three ways in which you can assist us:

1)         Your company can participate in the Corporate Challenge by pledging its support to the MDA.

2)         As an individual runner you can buy your bibs directly from Procam, but donate to  MDA.  And tell your friends to do  likewise.

3)         You can buy the auctioned bibs from MDA, in case you or your friends missed registering in time.


Do contact us at or 022-25565754 for more details.


We look forward to your support !
