Kicking off on August 22nd, Samantha Gash will begin a near 4000km run across India to explore the barriers to quality education for children in this incredibly diverse country.
Samantha, an endurance athlete from Melbourne and passionate advocate for social change, will be running from one of the driest deserts on earth (Jaisalmer, Rajasthan) and ending the run in the wettest place on earth (Mawsynram, Meghalaya) as part of the RUN INDIA project.
Sam has partnered with World Vision to visit the communities they work with across India, to learn first-hand from these amazing people about the challenges they face, as well as sharing the stories of success that are providing hope for their future. All money raised will support World Vision’s life-changing projects, which will be explored throughout the journey, providing a glimpse into the lives of these incredible people who’ve rarely had the opportunity to share their story.
So please join Sam and the crew on this inspiring adventure, together we can make a difference, and these children deserve a chance to dream of a brighter future. We featured Sam in our inspiring runners series over here too.
