Run To Serve a Graam
AIMS India Foundation prides itself in integrating the community in all its activities and campaigns. The AIMS Marathon initiative, called Run To Serve a Graam, is one such effort to raise awareness and funds and it continues to be our largest annual fund-raising campaign, run entirely by our volunteers. Almost 100% of these funds (barring program expenses) have been or will be allocated to funding various AIMS projects and have been committed to making real differences in the lives of thousands of underprivileged people of India. Please visit our projects page on our website to see how we've continued to make a difference, one step at a time. Our marathon training program is conducted in partnership with several other charities that have all come together under the umbrella of Marathon Charity Partners. Though the charities have different missions, they all share a common goal. They all strive to make a difference through running!
We started this program 10 year sago with 13 runners and raised $13,000 in the first year. Since then, we have trained more than 500 runners, who have conquered finishing Marathons (26.2 mile run), Half-marathons (13.1 mile run), 10 Mile run and raised more than $250,000 to benefit more than 5000 under-privileged children in rural India. This year, we hope to raise $50,000 or more to support AIMS India Foundation's recurring and ongoing projects and programs. Join us to make a difference!
