Story: Nikesh Amit is a social citizen, a certified life saver, a swim instructor, and an aspiring marathoner.
Nikesh has never been a serious runner. He has started running only when COVID 19 shut everything down in March 2020. In fact, he didn’t have any other option available other than walking and running in the streets, parks and trails of Mississauga.
Nikesh believes that we all have a choice, in any challenging life situation -- either to be beaten by it or take inspired action. He chooses to take a MINDFUL BOLD action every single day. He chooses to walk, run, or swim. And he invites others to do the same.
Nikesh knows, first-hand, that healthy choices can facilitate change, even positive transformations. Only by making lifestyle choices he has recently lost more than 50 lbs. and reversed a severe medical condition called Sleep Apnea! As a result, he has more vitality, productivity, and joy in life!
