Walking to Raise Awareness & Funds for India Literacy Project
I am super pumped to be doing the Golden Gate Relay this year for the first time as part of Team ILP. The relay serves primarily as a fundraiser for Organs R Us, which advocates for the 125,000 Americans waiting for organ donations. Since 1995, the transfer of the baton between teammates has symbolized the transfer of an organ from donor to recipient. In the long run or walk of life, organ donation saves lives. India Literacy Project by partnering with Organs R Us, hopes to raise awareness for organ donations as well as its own primary mission of making millions of school age kids in underprivileged communities, literate. Billed as “California’s longest party”, the relay is a lot of fun I hear.
Twelve of us on each relay team take turns to cover the 125 miles from Marin over the Golden Gate Bridge, through Silicon Valley to Santa Cruz in California, on May 2nd and May 3rd. With its dedicated efforts to enroll and retain children in primary schools, partner with teachers to impart education in innovative ways, and empower children by aligning education along career pathways, ILP today is making a difference in 7 states, ~5000 villages, almost 8000 schools impacting nearly 800,000 kids. Supporting a cause so deserving while following through on my personal fitness goal for the year will be most rewarding.
Help me help ILP!! Donate just $25.00 to enroll & keep a child in school!! Of course, the more you give, the greater the impact, but my goal is to get more people to know about and support ILP!
- $120 : Support hands on science kits for 300 children
- $250 : Support career counseling and guidance for high school students
- $500 : Support a library program to improve reading for 500 children
- $1000 : Support an interactive classroom with science kits and digital lessons for 300 children
Thank you very much for your kind contribution.
