As some of you might be aware, I am training to run the Austin Half Marathon on the 19th of February as part of Team Asha. This will be my second attempt at the half-marathon, the last one being the Chennai Half in 2008.
The goal of this exercise (other than to get in shape :)) is to raise a minimum of $1310 for Asha for Education. 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. As part of this, I would be quite grateful if you could donate towards this cause. ANY amount would help.
Please feel free to email me if you need any assistance with the donation. More information on Asha can be found by visiting http://www.ashanet.org. Donations are fully tax deductible under Section 501(c)3 of the IRS code.
