I started running Marathons as a way of demonstrating my commitment to raise funds for educating underprivileged children in India. Running long distances hurts, some days it hurts more than the other. That doesn't mean I don't run, but I deal with it thinking every step I take is one step close to educating a child in India.

Thanks to all the generous donors from last year who helped me raise $2100 towards Asha Central NJ Chapter. This year I am running the Philadelphia Full Marathon on 20th Nov 2011 to continue my support. Please make a generous donation. Every dollar counts towards educating an underprivileged child in India.
