BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha

For this year’s Annual Family Walk & Fun Run, BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha is partnering with The Anthony Nolan Trust. The fund raised will support BAPS’s work in holding conventions promoting moral and family values, anti-addiction and interfaith harmony and in-house health awareness programmes to promote a healthy lifestyle. The Anthony Nolan Trust will use funds generated to help take back lives from leukaemia by managing donors, and recruiting new ones to the UK’s most successful bone marrow register.

Charity Registration No. 273425

Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: 
Your generosity is for many a life priority.

The very thought of running the 26.2 miles(42km) London Marathon made my hair stand on end.  It sounded quite daunting at first and had put me off a number of times from participating.  However, this time I somehow struck a different cord, seeing the plight and suffering of the countless children and adults alike motivated me. 

With persistent training I aim to accomplish my ultimate goal – which is off course to finish the marathon and by doing so giving many a chance to live!       

50% of the funds raised will go towards The Anthony Nolan Trust. As you may no doubt be aware, a bone marrow transplant is often the last hope of survival for the thousands of children and adults with leukaemia. Helping a loved one and allowing them to enjoy their short life is all that family/friends can do and that is where you come in. Your money can help these patients gain a new lease of life

The remaining 50% will go towards helping the needy and underprivileged children in India via the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha.   

Obviously, it doesn’t end here but you can help make a difference.  Everyone has a chance to live & you can give them a chance!  Have a heart, show you care and donate generously now!!
