On 23rd April, Heena Vekaria is taking the Challenge of running the world famous London Marathon to raise money to support Akshaya Patra's Food For Education Programme. The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet with over 770 million having been raised for good causes since the race began in 1981.
Heena has been a proud supporter of our cause, and has already raised and donated £5,032 for our Food For Education programme with her efforts till date. This incredible, transformational gift to our Foundation enabled us to serve nourishing school lunches to over thousands of children every day for a year.
Just £10 enables Akshaya Patra to serve school lunches to one child every day for a whole year – they can attend school instead of working in exchange for food, have the energy and security to learn and play, and can grow up healthily.
£2,750 is enough to adopt a whole school of children and provide each pupil with a school lunch every day for a year. Her aim is to raise enough to adopt at least two schools for £5,500, or more if possible!
