THE STORY:

As many of you know, Maharashtra Mandal Pittsburgh (MMPGH) kicked off a ‘HEALTHY MMPGH” campaign couple of years back. As part of this initiative many members (adults and children) participate in “Pittsburgh Marathon” event in May and “Great Race” event in September. Our inspiration is on upward trend and we are looking forward to grow our spirits. We started using these initiatives to raise some funds for the charity to give back to the community where we live or where we came from.

Last year, we must acknowledge, with the help of our supporters and well-wishers, we successfully raised more than USD 10,000 dollars and supported the causes of organizations such as Saksham (www.saksham.org), Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation of USA (www.ekal.org) and help heal the pain and grief of the families, suffered in the tragedies at Franklin Regional High School, Murrysville, PA.

Our this year’s motto is: “RUN to change the destiny of the children in need”

This year, girls participating in the Marathon Relay team have decided to use “Destiny’s child” as their team name.  We have decided to use that to change the course of the “destiny” of the underprivileged children by helping them on education and better future. We proudly announce to join our hands and legs to support the organization “ASHA FOR EDUCATION”. Asha for Education(TM) http://new.ashanet.org/   is an organization dedicated to the support of education for underprivileged children in India. Asha volunteers believe that education is a critical requisite and an effective catalyst for social and economic change in India. Each Asha chapter raises funds to support various education-related projects in India. In 2010, Asha chapters disbursed $3.1 million to over 196 projects all over India. Besides fund raising, Asha also acts as a network for various grass-roots workers and volunteers and non-governmental organizations.

We have kept no bar and pledging to raise as much money as possible by May 1st. Every dollar is important so we request you to donate generously. Our members are running for all of those who can't run for their future. If you look at children who has lost their dreams just being born in the slum, your help has a potential to change their future bright and alive. Running for the cause seems simple compared to what these children have been going through. What they would do with your support is priceless. All donations are tax deductible for IRS as Asha is a 501c organization. Just keep your receipts.
