Ace Cricketer Yuvraj Singh attended a charity event hosted by Mackenzie Homes to support his NGO - The YouWeCan Foundation. The event was hosted at the Centenary Hall, Caldicott Preparatory School in Berkshire, UK. Famed BBC broadcaster, comedian and Masterchef finalist Hardeep Singh Kohli hosted the evening. The conversation was centered around the sports star’s incredible comeback to cricket post illness, his work with YouWeCan foundation and YWC fashion.
Yuvraj spoke about his personal journey of dealing with cancer with a never say die spirit and the thought behind establishing the YouWeCan Foundation and making it sustainable with the recent launch of his fashion label brand YWC fashion. While talking of his recovery phase from cancer an emotional Yuvi, as he is fondly known, shared his journey on how he gained the inner strength to never give up.
“It is an honor to be here and also a privilege to open my heart out and share my personal journey from a cancer fighter to a survivor with everyone present here today. I will feel fortunate even if I can motivate people to never give up and to continue to chase their dreams no matter how big is the obstacle. I live by two strong beliefs – to never give up and if one falls, one should get up and do it again,” he said.
Yuvraj Singh who played exceedingly well in the recent matches between India and Pakistan as well as with South Africa was seen mingling with the guests and sharing interesting stories and personal insights he has gained along the way. He also shared some anecdotes from the memorable 2011 World Cup.
Proceeds from the charity dinner went in aid to the YouWeCan foundation, which brings Yuvraj Singh’s vision to life for the empowerment of cancer survivors.
