Raising Funds for V-Excel Educational Trust

Fundraiser ended on February 28, 2019

I am a theoretical physicist by profession and running has been my hobby for more than a decade. For the past two years, as a part of my run at the Chennai Marathon, I have been raising funds for V-Excel Educational Trust who work with differently abled children/young adults and help them live a life as close to normal as possible. As someone who grew up with someone who is differently abled, thisccause is close to my heart.

This year, I am running ran 20 miles at the Chennai Marathon on January 6, 2019 (Result) and ran the full marathon at the Delhi Marathon on February 24, 2019(Result). I wish to raise money for V-Excel Educational Trust for the third year in a row. My target, as always, is to get at least 100 people to contribute to the cause without worrying about the precise amount donated.

If you are interested, here is my Training Plan for the Delhi Marathon.
