Why am I fundraising?
I am a member of the Chennai Trekking Club. We are carrying out relief and rehabilitation efforts after the devastation caused by the recent floods in Chennai and Cuddalore. On the ground during the past weeks and involved in clean-up and rehabilitation efforts across Chennai and Cuddalore, are several volunteers of the Chennai Trekking Club led by the founder Peter Van Geit. We have seen several homes and farm lands destroyed, cattle lost/died, children's education stalled, people's lives crippled and their future snatched away.I am Running the Half Marathon in the Wipro Chennai Marathon 2015 which is being held on Jan 31st, 2016 (earlier scheduled on Dec 13th, 2015 - but shifted due to the inclement weather). I would like to make this Run meaningful and help to give the people of Cuddalore some hope to look into the future that has now been snatched away by Mother Nature.
I request you all to join hands with me and contribute in lighting the lives of the people and children in Cuddalore.
