BENEFITING: SOUTH ASIAN PHYSICS FOUNDATION
This year Vidhya plans to achieve the Triple Crown to raise money for funding Physicists collaborating with each other in South Asia through the South Asian Physics Foundation.
Q: Are you racing horses?
A: No this is not a lifetime achievement by a Thoroughbred at the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, and the Belmont Stakes. The Triple Crown we are speaking of is:
- The Carlsbad Half Marathon 01/19/2014
- The La Jolla Half Marathon 04/27/2014
- The America's Finest City Half Marathon 08/17/2014
Three half marathons down the sunny SoCal Coast that I plan to run and complete this year.
Q: Really? You will run the whole entire 39 miles?
A: Yes, and don't forget the 100s of miles of training runs.
Q: Wow, I'm impressed. Is there anything I can do to help or encourage?
A: Sure. Click on the "DONATE TO THIS FUNDRAISER BUTTON" on this page and give money to SAPF, so that I feel like I earned something for all these miles. Also please visit our website at: http://southasianphysicsfoundation.org/
The South Asian Physics Foundation supports international cooperation in physics in South Asia. South Asia has a rich tradition of excellence in the sciences in general and in physics in particular. Academic and scholarly collaboration and exchange are essential contributors to development and stability in the region. Funds raised through this fundraiser will support our Professor Faheem Hussain Student Conference Program, which provides valuable opportunities for South Asian physics students to present their work at international conferences in South Asia.
