About me: I am a graduate student in the Department of Biological Sciences, at Purdue University. In my time outside the lab which isn’t much, I enjoy reading, dancing, hanging out with my friends and taking part in various sporting activities.
Why I want to run: Throughout my stay at Purdue, I have been amazed by the amount of work and dedication Asha-The Purdue Chapter, has displayed through various events. The motivation for me to take part in this brilliant initiative is twofold. Firstly, it’s my humble effort to contribute whatever I can for the education of hundreds of underprivileged children in India, through the various projects spearheaded by Asha. Secondly, it’s my first ever formal 5k run and I feel proud that it is for such a worthwhile cause.
I seek to raise 150$, which will go directly to one of the many projects, supported by Asha- Purdue Chapter, for providing education to children in India.
How you can help: Please consider donating whatever you can and helping me fulfill my pledge to make a small contribution to this cause.
