The New Gem in Vadodara!
Jan 25, 2017

Vadodara has many gems to its name. Some, like Anshuman Gaekwad, Kiran More, Yusuf Pathan and his brother Irfan are cricketing heroes who have done India proud on the national stage. Its venerable M.S. University has provided India with renowned alumni like Vinobha Bhave and Dadasaheb Phalke in the past, and more recent icons like Sam Pitroda and Vivan Sundaram.

On February 5th, 2017, Vadodara will add one more feather to its cap. The Vadodara International Marathon is all set to flag off the city's first-ever full marathon. The marathon is one of the largest sporting events in Gujarat, and also the first ever accredited full marathon in the state. Elite professional athletes from all over the world will compete with local heroes for a share of the prize money up for grabs, and it is sure to be a close contest in all categories.

The marathon is also an occasion to demonstrate commitment to non-sporting goals as well! Their motto is Sports with Seva and Swacchata. Runners combine their love for running with a desire to give back to society. Runner Taral Patel is an avid marathoner who feels that challenging herself to better her performance keeps her body and mind healthy. Supporting her favourite NGO, Baroda Citizens Council, helps her heart and soul too! As Taral says, by giving children 'a strong and enriching education, we will help in giving our country a better future.' Taral's campaign has already seen some support online!

You can help these champions reach their goal by donating to their campaigns online! HelpYourNGO is the official charity partner of the event. You can support your favourite runners through our website https://www.helpyourngo.com/vmarathon/ Here are some of the causes you can support:

  • Baroda Citizens Council: BCC mobilises the local community to work for the welfare of Baroda. The NGO helps the children of the poor with scholarships, balwadis and day-care centres that help them continue their education.
  • Pathshala and Pathbhavan: Pathshala is a mobile informal school for children of construction workers and the urban poor. Pathbhavan is a library and activity centre where children receive training in computers, arts and crafts, English speaking and other subjects.
  • NavKaushalya: NavKaushalya offers quality education, vocational and entrepreneurial training and skills building to empower young women. Each student leaves NavKaushalya with the training required to guarantee employment or entrepreneurship possibilities.

Help Your NGO is a Mumbai based organization that's striving to make the world of NGOs and charity giving more effective and transparent. HelpYourNGO.com is the only place you can see what NGOs spend on their beneficiaries.
