EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Knowledge is power. A power so strong that it has the potential to change the world for good. If fact, the pen & paper is mightier than the sword and knife. Education brings discipline, social awareness, financial independence and confidence to have a good handle on your future. Most of us have the basic level of education which leads on to a successful life. However, a large amount of people around the world do not have access to quality education. The plight of a girl child is even worse in some countries where women have limited opportunities for quality education due to gender biases and poor economic conditions. The proceeds to this fundraiser will be donated to organizations which provide support and guidance to educate every girl child, empowering them in this ever changing world.
I have registered for the TCS NYC marathon this year. I have never run more than 5 miles continuously in my life. I have been training for the marathon and am excited to give it my best shot. I am using this platform to raise awareness for a social cause while I take up this big challenge. Please donate to this cause if you believe in educational equality!
