Dear friend,

Thank you for visiting my corner of Asha’s Strides of Hope website.

Hope you’d take a minute to glance through and see why I plan to run the Austin Half-Marathon on Feb 14, 2010 with team Asha.

I have constantly looked for avenues to channelize the energy I generate out of the one question that keeps looping within me :

“Are you doing enough, with what you have, and where you are ?”

Asha’s hardwork has definitely provided me a good opportunity to translate this energy into brightening the lives of several education-deprived children in India. Education definitely is an important gift to give someone to better his/her circumstances. So I’m very happy to be part of this effort by running the half marathon so that I can raise money to fulfill the hopes and dreams of many parents for the future of their beloved children.

My GOAL : $1310.00 ($100/mile) for Asha for Education

This is one of the most challenging tasks I have ever undertaken and I would greatly appreciate any encouragement or support that would aid me to complete this journey successfully. If you are satisfied with my commitment and would like to sponsor an amount to Asha for Education kindly visit one of the following links.

Thank you,

PS : Please don’t feel obligated in any manner. If for some reason you cannot make a donation at this time, your prayers and wishes are much appreciated.

NOTE: Asha for Education is a zero-overhead, volunteer-driven organization that supports education projects in India in the belief that education is a critical requisite for socio-economic change. All donations can be claimed for tax-exemption as Asha for Education is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization in the US.
