As the founder and CEO of Healthifyme, I have always believed in focusing on fitness and healthcare for the masses. Amidst my daily work of promoting healthy living across India, I felt the need to make a difference in the health of children from underprivileged backgrounds.
It was then that I got involved with Shishu Care Foundation, which was an organization which helped needy children from rural Karnataka receive the best health care. When I decided to run the marathon, my first thoughts were to do it for the kids at the Foundation. If I am able to make a difference in the lives of these children, it would give me the utmost happiness.
I have chosen to run to help raise funds for children with chronic lung diseases who require oxygen at home and long term medication. There are three children in Shishu Care Foundation with Chronic Lung diseases whom I have chosen to help. They are from rural Karnataka and their parents are unable to provide them the needed medicines. They are fighting a constant battle every day.
I will be running to raise awareness and raise funds to support these children get back their normal lives. Help me make a difference and create a silver lining!
