Aashayein Walkathon – A Walk for Education
Via Citizen Matters
The event is expected to start at 7:30 AM. We invite people from all walks of life to come together for the cause of education. Our intent is to create an opportunity for people to come forward and involve one-self to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children. It’s a walk for the celebration of education.
We work on all aspects of providing quality education to under privileged children. Apart from sponsoring education for some, there are programs to improve education in associated government schools, distribution of uniforms, stationary and school bags in rural sectors and breakfast serving in schools, orphanages and old-age homes.
The event is a fund-raiser cum awareness drive to let people know about the foundation and its goals. The 4 km walk starting at Kanteerva Indoor stadium aims to create a platform to interact with people from all walks of life, to emphasise on the importance of education and to present them with an opportunity to contribute to the lives of the kids by joining the group.
Last year, the walkathon saw the participation of 400 plus enthusiastic Bangaloreans and helped raise Rs. 7.5 lakhs for the cause. This year, the awareness has grown and so has event. With media partners such as Fun cinemas, DHOOM network and Radio One, the foundation aims to raise adequate funds for its projects and also double its strength by enrolling more and more enthusiastic volunteers.
