Event - Airtel Delhi Half Marathon
Date - 27 - 11 - 2011
Please read below our supporter Sunil E. David's, Pledge Letter

Dear Friends,

Over the last year I have had the privilege of being associated with SAMADHAN, a Registered NGO in New Delhi working with children with intellectual disability and their families.

SAMADHAN’s philosophy is that all persons with intellectual disability can be helped, if appropriate and timely services are available. Over the years, SAMADHAN has effectively transferred this philosophy into action andhas developed a viable model of service delivery, using locally available resources and materials. In this field, SAMADHAN has national preeminence and represents the country on various international bodies.  It also has several international awards to its credit.

Seeing the work of SAMADHAN, I have been inspired at the age of 52 years to run the Delhi Half Marathon on 26 Nov 11 to raise funds for this organization.  As you are aware, globally marathons/half marathons have become a platform in which runners raise funds from well wishers to support the charity of their choice.  Running the 21 km of the Delhi Half Marathon is indeed a daunting task for me, but  I am determined to complete it for the worthy cause of SAMADHAN.

I beseech my friends and well wishers to assist my efforts in raising funds by pledging Rs 10/- to SAMADHAN for every kilometer of the half marathon I complete.  Please add another bonus of Rs 40/-  for    completing  the entire course within regulation time.  ( 3 hours )That would be Rs 250/- if I successfully run the entire 21 km (i.e. 21x10 + 40 = 250).

This is the suggested minimum; additional as well as lesser donations are welcome. Kindly note that all donations to SAMADHAN are exempted from Income Tax under Section 80G of Income Tax Act.

I have myself pledged to SAMADHAN Rs 200/- for every kilometer I complete, and Rs 800 bonus for completing the entire 21 km (Total Rs 5,000).

You could kindly pledge the funds now, but need to send the cheque in favor of SAMADHAN only after the completion of the half marathon and my reporting to you my performance in the event.

I look forward to your support.

Warm regards,
Sunil .Capt (IN) Sunil E. David, VSM (Retd.)
