EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Christopher McDougall, in his book "Born To Run", said that running is at the heart of what it means to be human. A love of mine for many years now, I was introduced to running by my father, a regular marathoner himself. For my first full marathon, I have decided to combine this love with a phenomenal cause, by running for Magic Bus. Magic Bus works hard to break the poverty cycle in India by working with marginalized children, providing them with the education and resources they require to find a secure job. The impact that Magic Bus has made in the lives of over 400,000 children in 22 states of India is incredible, so please, please click on the link and help me raise money to promote this amazing cause.

Since 1999, Magic Bus has been working in India with marginalized children and youth to help them break the cycle of poverty. At Magic Bus, we move children out of poverty by nurturing them on a journey through from childhood to livelihood.
Magic Bus focuses on the vital inputs of education, personal and community healthcare, gender equality, and livelihood to ensure that young people make the right choices from childhood all the way through to gainful employment. Local community leaders are trained to deliver an award-winning curriculum that uses sport as a metaphor to address complex development issues through the formative years of a child’s life. Every participant is offered a livelihood program which focuses on ensuring that our youth actually get a job.
We welcome our runners and are hoping you will lend your support! To learn more about what we do, please visit www.magicbususa.org.
