Thank You for visiting my personal fundraising page. I am running 4 deserts marathon series in this year. I have successfully finished 2 deserts marathon races, Sahara Race (Jordan) and Gobi March (China). These are self supported Ultra-marathon 250 km (156 miles) races in 5 major stages where on an average 40km/day under changing climate, brutal course/terrain, heat, humidity, cold, sand and rain. The last stage/day is between 70 and 90 km where most people have to run overnight. We carry our own backpack for food, medicines and other essential comodities for a week. We are provided only with drinking water and tent to sleep. (More infromation can be obtained from www.4deserts.com ).
4. The Last Desert (Antarctica) : Coldest (November 4-9)
While running these races, I plan to raise money for charity for poor kids and unhealthy or unwell kids & God's special kids.
I plan to raise charity for following 2 entities.
------------------------------------------------------------ Please read a few words about the charity that I have chosen to support. The society has given us what we dreamt of. Now, its our time and duty to pay back to the society. I humbly request you to please, please donate generously. Many thanks in advance for your support.
Mentally challenged children are joint responsibility of our society. Every able person needs to lend support to help such Children grown like Normal child. They don't need our sympathy. They need small help, a little opportunity and our encouragement to take up challenges boldly so that they gain confidence to manage their affairs independently.
Unique mission ...
Our mission is to provide the resources, care and knowledge to help each child to reach their full potential and achieve a greater quality of life. With a focus on life-skill, our programs are designed to develop communication and social skills, build self-confidence, and bring greater emotional stability. By attaining these skills, children can become as independent and self sufficient as possible. We hope to cultivate these childrens' joy of life by enhancing and cultivating their capabilities and strengths.
Target charity amount : $5000 (To sponsor 5 God's special kids for next 5 years)
