Richard Rekhy Running Airtel Delhi Half Marathon for Concern India Foundation
“All you have shall some day be given; therefore give now that the season of giving may be yours and not your inheritors” – Kahlil Gibran
As we near the start of the festive season in India, I am pleased that the Airtel Delhi Half marathon is being held on 30th September 2012. It is apt that the season starts with an event that celebrates giving. I am also pleased to let you know that I will be participating in the Great Delhi Run, which is a shorter run of 6 kms. My commitment is to raise funds for charity. I support Concern India Foundation which will put the funds to use for causes like education, disability support, women empowerment, rural development and care of the elderly.
We are fortunate to be where we are today and I strongly feel that we must fulfill our roles as stewards to society. Opportunities to give help and support others abound and I hope that I can become the one of the mediums of reaching out to the less fortunate. Please support me in my efforts by contributing generously. Your contributions will make a real difference to the lives of thousands of people.
This is the third year of my participation and last year I was amongst the highest contributors. This wouldn’t have been possible without your support. I look forward to your continued support & generosity this year as well.
Please send in a cheque in favour of “Concern India Foundation” to me at my address mentioned below:
Building No.10, 8th Floor, Tower B,
DLF Cyber City, Phase II
Gurgaon, 122002, Haryana
I encourage you to bless someone today so that you may be blessed with the true joy of giving! Thank you so much for your support and generosity!
If you have any queries regarding the event please feel free to contact me.
About Concern India Foundation: We strongly believe that the disadvantaged need opportunities not charity and our focus is to bring about a positive change in the lives of the most vulnerable people of our society. With this aim we partner with grass root programmes. The most valuable asset of such a programme is its commitment to its cause; however what it often lacks is time and the expertise to raise financial and other assistance. At Concern India Foundation we bridge the gap between such NGOs and corporates or individuals who wish to support development work in the country thus enabling each organisation to concentrate on its core activity.
With 20 years of experience in the field we have a strong identifying, monitoring and evaluating process of the programmes to ensure a judicious disbursal of the funds & resources.
