I am running in the relay this year as part of Team ILP. Twelve of us take turns for 36 legs. From Calistoga to Santa Cruz in California. 200 miles. This year we are running on May 2nd and May 3rd.
The reason: Many Many kids in India have no idea of the world outside their little hamlets or villages. They are curious, they are hungry for knowledge and education. And over the past two decades there has been someone to help. ILP( India Literacy Project) has been doing some unique work in several parts of India to unlock the potential by finding innovative methods of funding, organizing and empowering communities for long term impact. We run to raise funds for ILP so they can continue their mission year after year.
