I am thrilled to be part of the “Walking Souls” team of four, and we are participating in this 100 km walktathon organized by OxFam India. To be able to qualify for the participation, we need to raise at least 50,000 INR by 8th November, 2013. I humbly request you to contribute whatever amount you can towards this noble cause, and enable us to participate in this race!
