Support CHES

Started by Upakriti 3362 days ago

Upakriti's Sevathon participation is to raise funds specifically for our CHES project. We require about $6500 overall to support additional children for the academic year 2012-13 and at Sevathon we have a goal of about $2000. We still have ways to go to reach this but to all the donors and runners currently registered on behalf of Upakriti, our heartfelt thanks. We are about 15% towards the end goal but we are positive we will reach 100% soon. We need your help to join the team and help support CHES.
