Cleveland Asha marathon team has been issued an open challenge by Dr Ranjit Tamaskar(Willoughby, OH) to raise $1000 from today till race day @ Akron Marathon 2011 (http://www.akronmarathon.org/), and he will match (make a donation of equal amount) EVERY penny we raise to the D-day. So if you know and are proud to have any one of the following Forrest Gumps as friends: Anshuman Chandrachud, Aparna Chitharanjan, Amith Chordia, Partha Pratim Deb, Lavanya Venkataraman,Ram Palakodety, NOW is the time to loosen those purse strings, rather than waiting for the run to be over. It is an open donation-doubling machine. Every donation is Tax deductible. Personal webpages of runners and donation links are here: http://www.ashanet.org/cleveland/home/marathon/team.php . You can support us from any part of the globe.
