Mariya and Prashant and the Auckland half Marathon!
Hello to all you lovely people!
My name is Mariya, an engineer, solo traveler and surfer, and my colleague’s name is Prashant, an engineer and passionate badminton player.
We are fundraising for the Active Hearts Foundation by running the Auckland half marathon on 29th Oct 2023!
On 29th October 2023, we are running our FIRST half-marathon at Auckland Marathon! We started our running journey last year with, probably, the hardest 2km in Prashant’s life, being a beginner, damn, he struggled!
He was not alone though, my struggle started after 5 km…but we continued with constant training and did a 11km run at the last Auckland marathon. We want to reach a new high this year and meanwhile to do something meaningful!
We are asking you to open your hearts and…well, wallets too ,and support us on our 21km journey towards a goal of fundraising $1000 for the Active Hearts Foundation!
Dan and his team are doing great work with Nepalese communities building small village projects prioritizing health and education.
You can check current Active Hearts Foundation projects here: www.activeheartsfoundation.org/our-projects/
Also, to all the travelers out there like myself, it is a great way to give something back thinking of all those little communities around the world that welcomed you once!
Any donation is welcome and makes a difference!
Why not make a difference together?!
Thank you and Namaste!
