Help Ankur Bora enable dreams for children
Fundraising for Dallas Dream Mile 2019
A run for a cause
In 2018, I ran a Marathon to support and raise money for a school for underprivileged children in my home town in India. It was a life changing experience and a successful fundraising - the practice and the preparation for the run, going through the hurdle, focusing and reaching the finishing line , the race taught how to bring one's best self to bring joy and smile to countless others. This year, I am running Vibha Dallas dream mile 10 K for an organization called Sikshana Foundation
Sikshana was founded by Mr. E.S. Ramamurthy, who wanted to use his deep management experience as the GM of a large public sector unit, to improve the quality of learning outcomes in government schools. In 2002, when Sikshana was supporting about 14 schools in Bangalore city, Mr. Ramamurthy was invited to meet Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who highlighted to him that rural schools were not getting enough attention. Dr. Kalam also set him the goal of supporting 1,000 schools. The Foundation immediately took this direction to heart and has so far supported over 2,000 schools.
I am hoping raise $10, 000 with the 10 K run and looking for supporters to reach my goal. You may also sponsor in memory of someone and I will dedicate my run and acknowledge. We will also provide the tax exempt receipt and utilization through Vibha. I appeal you to support this cause, let’s all of us together cheer these children and change someone’s life for the better.
