We did it! Alick and I managed the #SemiParis! It was a crisp sunny Sunday in the city that took us on a beautiful route starting in the east of Paris at the Chateau de Vincennes, crossing the Place de la Nation, Bastille, parts of the Seine and back East. Best part was Parisian life continued as we ran the 21km! A HUGE thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all who sponsored One Kind Act, we managed to raise just over 1.3K! Here's to #livingandgiving
Alick and I (Amrisha) have decided to take on the challenge of running the streets of Paris! Sadly it won't be us doing pit-stops from one wine bar to the next as we gorge on delicious bread and brie, but an enduring 21km as we take on the Paris Half Marathon! Some have said that's exciting, adventurous or...that we're simply a bit mad. We'll take on all three! And we do so, knowing we can raise money to help those less fortunate than us which OKA as a charity fully supports.
OKA aims to help change communities and lives of others globally who suffer as a result of poverty of health, nutrition and education and may have fallen through the net of the larger charities whilst also ensuring minimum overheads and costs. The charity is run by Shamit (my uncle), who was inspired by my late grandfather's charitable giving throughout his life and compassion for those less fortunate. They have supported some great causes. Find out more here: https://onekindact.org/charity. As the charity grows, their ability to help those severely disadvantaged will expand. OKA's passion and dedication through it's vision and team is why we'd love to raise money to help them.
So...with our task in hand! Our training for the half marathon has involved a strict regime of cross training sessions, yoga classes and regular long runs come rain or shine (wish we had more of the latter.) Our diets have been restricted to little alcohol and our sweet indulgences pushed to the side...sob, sob. And with 5 weeks to go the intensity is increasing. However, we are very excited by this challenge and hope to raise as much as we can for OKA!
We'd love your support in helping us get through this race and donating in any which way you can.
The A team (Alick and Amrisha)
