MORE DETAILS: This event is inspired by Rishi Shet, a runner who had 17 magical years on earth to show how helping others can be transformative.

Through your virtual run, you will have an opportunity to virtually run alongside the youth organizers at Footprints 2022 in Bangalore, India. Your run will help support programs that drive change across marginalized populations in India. These programs work among vulnerable children, adolescents and youth – those living with chronic disease, orphans and street children, those who are marginalized and unable to receive basic education. The programs aspire to transform these children to become advocates of change who lead healthy and productive lives and become role models themselves.

Let us run together to carry on Rishi’s passions of running, helping others, and transforming the world.
