I am Kirtika Challa born and raised in India and now living in New York and working in Finance. I have always loved to run.. It was only in the last two years that I discovered my passion for long distance running by completing two half marathons in each year.
This year I have decided to take the leap of faith and run the NYC Full Marathon. As intimidating as this decision is it is also incredible exciting and I do not intend to do it alone. With all of your help I want to raise money for LAHI (Lend-a-Hand India), an incredible charitable organization that I only recently discovered and decided to get involved with. The organization helps deserving young people in rural India to get valuable job and life skills, career counseling and enteprise loans to start their own business. The programs so far have impacted lives of more than 10,000 people iwith the goal of implementing the progran in 100 secondary schools.
