Greetings for the season! Hope this message finds you in good health and mood.
Keeping up with the challenge of running marathon one day, I have registered for full marathon (42 kms, route) @ StanChart Mumbai Marathon to be held on Jan 17, 2010.
Last year I raised around Rs. 47K as charity for physically challenged children. All the money was donated to NGO ASTITVA, based in my town Dombivli. This year too I am planning to raise charity for them. In this mail, I take opportunity to appeal you to support my cause.
You can contribute minimum of Rs.10/km and anything above that. All money would be collected after the race. Race organizers use an electronic chip which is attached to the shoe which measures distance covered and time taken. You would be contacted after the run along with my completion certificates.
It has been 2 years of practice now. I completed 21 kms in around 2 hours last year. This year, I plan to complete 42 kms in less than 5 hours. Though, practice while working and commuting in Mumbai is difficult; I have been pushing myself towards the full marathon. My longest runs so far have been around 30 kms so far. Hopefully, with all your motivation I would be able to push myself to 42 kms mark.
If you are interested in supporting the cause, please help me with more details so that I may contact you after the run.
