I have been involved with Dream A Dream for over 2 years now and have seen first hand how much of a difference this organization makes in the lives of vulnerable children. Thanks to Dream A Dream nearly 1,000 orphans, street children and children in slum communities are participating in programs such as team sports, creative arts, learnIT and civic awareness – helping them to develop crucial life skills such as confidence, problem-solving, communication and leadership, skills that will empower them to achieve their dreams!
Running for a charity is common in most international marathons. In a big marathon like Flora London marathon if one is not running for a cause then one is in a minority- nearly everyone is running for someone else and their joy is in knowing that their efforts will be rewarded in measures beyond medals or personal records.
Once again this year, I have a personal goal of running marathons and raising substantial funds for Dream A Dream. My next marathon will be the Standard Chartered Mumbai marathon on 18th January 2009 - I will be running this event for the sixth year in a row with several thousands of runners many of whom will be raising money for some cause . If you would you like to make a tax-deductible pledge and help support Dream A Dream please make out a check in favour of 'Dream A Dream' or donate online so that I can do as much as possible to support this noble cause. You can dontate in INR or any other currency.
Remember, every single rupee counts and together we can make a huge impact!
