Hi! I am running Half Marathon (13.1 miles) as part of Seattle Rock n’ Roll Marathon 2016.
I am very excited to run a half marathon for the first time in my life. Last year I participated in 5k run and recently 10k run as part of 520 bridge opening. While I always considered running as a good form of exercise, I am running for a great cause which is to support Asha, for education of underprivileged children in India especially Andhra Pradesh
Asha is a “Zero overhead” organization, completely driven by volunteers ensuring 100% of your donations are sent to our partner groups in India. Beginning as an organization working to bring education to underprivileged children, Asha’s mission today has grown to rejuvenating the entire community these children live in and holistically improve not just their own lives but those of their families as well. Education is the foundation for growth, and educated will be the pillars of modern world
