Dear Friends and Family,
I am running to support a cause and ask for your help!
Last year, I ran in the Go! St. Louis Marathon as part of a relay team to help support Malini and Anandi’s school, The French School. The French School (TFS) is the first International Baccalaureate Certified French Language Immersion School in the Nation.
It is a charter school, free to all Saint Louis children, that offers to urban children a great opportunity for free, outstanding education.
Check on the following link to watch a five minutes video about our amazing school and its impact on the greater Saint Louis community.
This year, I am again running in the GO! St. Louis Marathon on April 6th, to support The French School, together with several other parents, teachers and staff. I have trained during this cold winter to be able to run my first ½ marathon (see photo).
Malini and Anandi will also run a mile with all their schoolmates as part of this community effort.
We hope you will consider supporting us in this effort with your donation. No donation is too small, and if you could pledge $1.00 for each mile (I will run 13 and Malini and Anandi 1) your donation of $14.00 will help us reach our goal, but mostly, will help all children at the French school.
Thank you so much for your support!
