Hey guys, there is a huge event happening in Bangalore city over the weekend, Feb 19-21, called Strides of Hope in association with team Asha. Asha-Bangalore is a not-for-profit, volunteer-driven, zero-overhead organization dedicated to socio-economic change in India.
This event is an effort organized by the running community of Bangalore to encourage more and more of its citizens to take up a healthy and environment friendly lifestyle. The event in itself will be a 48 hour continuous run by various runners around parks and popular roads in Bangalore. This is also an effort to raise awareness about education for the underprivileged children in India. To find out log on to thei website (link given above) or follow the event on facebook.
I will be doing either an hour shift Saturday morning at Cubbon Park or a midnight shift at EGL, also on Saturday.
If you don’t intend to run, it would really be appreciated if you were present to cheer the runners on. So if you are heading off to the center of town this weekend do stop by.
