Aashi & Pratik Patel 2019
Hi there! I am Pratik  and I am biking with my daughter Aashi, 206 miles from Seattle to Portland as part of STP 2019 on July 13th-14th. This is Aashi’s first long distance ride (and my second time) and it has been amazing to ride so much with my daughter and experience the beautiful trails of Northwest.

I had 2 primary goals for doing STP. First was to raise health awareness and encourage folks to take on similar journeys in their life. It all started with someone’s inspiration in my life and if I can inspire few of you, that will be the best gift to me. Team Asha Seattle has three programs: biking, running and climbing. For more information, please visit this page. Please check your local Asha web page to see what programs they support. I strongly encourage each one of you to check it out and go through one of these – it will be a great experience and you will discover new limits for yourself.
Second reason was working with Team Asha and raise awareness about the awesome work they are doing in India to provide education to underprivileged kids in India. Everyone has a right to education and I strongly believe in this; that’s the best gift we can give to any kid. I feel very privileged and lucky that I got opportunities in life to fulfill some of my dreams. Education was the key that enabled me to reach this stage. It’s time for me to give back to society. My goal this year is to raise $750 (before company matching). I would appreciate your help in reaching this goal. No amount is small, and 100% of your donation will go to funding the projects in India. You can look at some of Asha’s project on this link.  All donations are tax deductible.
Why do I support ‘Asha for Education’?

Asha for Education is a secular organization dedicated to change in India by focusing on basic education of underprivileged children in the belief that education is a critical requisite for socio-economic change. They work with a variety of project partners and community groups in many educational and development related endeavors.
