Hey there! I am Manish and I am biking 204 miles from Seattle to Portland as part of STP 2018 on July 14-15
This is my first long distance ride and it has been a lot of fun riding, training and huffing and puffing, on the bike trails of Pacific Northwest every week since March.
I want to take this opportunity to raise awareness about the wonderful work undertaken by “Asha – for education”. What began as an effort to provide basic education to underprivileged children throughout India, has grown into an effort to provide a better foundation for local communities to combat the perils of illiteracy, poverty and exploitation. Asha has touched the lives of thousands of children, and their families, providing them with tools and means of empowerment. Learn more about projects by Asha on Ashanet.
I’m willing to support this noble cause by raising funds for Asha and invite you to do the same. I have a very modest goal to raise at least $500.
