Run for change.
Run for education.

Samantha Gash is running an incredible 3800km across India to support children’s education. Challenge yourself to virtually run or walk alongside Sam’s journey and raise funds for the communities she engages with.

There are complex challenges that face families in India which result in children not being able to attend school. We want you to challenge yourself by choosing your distance, moving at home or wherever you are, and virtually travelling across India with Sam. How far will you go to improve education?

Together, we can raise funds to help break down the barriers preventing children in India from accessing a quality education. Run for something bigger than yourself!

Decide how far you will go

As a team you will choose from eight distance options that follow the route Samantha will take as she runs across India. Split the total distance between your team members and calculate your weekly goal. Challenge yourselves as you run for a purpose.

Raise funds for children's education

Ask your friends and family to dig deep and support your efforts to improve education for children in India. Set the bar high and motivate your supporters to dig deep.
