My first introduction to Asha and running for a cause was through an event that I took part in Bangalore, India. It was organized by Runners High – a social enterprise comprising of a group of passionate runners who train to work with underprivileged children to make running a part of their curriculum! I truly experienced the joy of running through this event, which had participants from every walk of life – runners, senior citizens, and children from disadvantaged backgrounds. I believe it’s not every day that we find ourselves in the middle of an eye-opening experience. But it did happen to me; and in the most unlikeliest of occasions.
This experience, in no small measure, has motivated me run with Asha for Education – Portland Chapter. I’m taking part in the Spirit of Wipro 10K run on September 17th, 2017 to raise funds for Sandnya Sanwardhan Sanstha – an institute which supports special children in Nagpur, India. Please help me support this project and do spread the word! 🙂
