Team story

[p]#RunToKerala is a humble effort by a group of people to help rebuild the south Indian state of Kerala ([url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerala]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerala[/url]), which was devastated by floods in the past few weeks of unprecedented tropical rainfall.[/p][p]Through this #RuntoKerala campaign, we, in association with British Malayali Charity Foundation (which is a registered charity in UK and the UK Govt will top up an extra 25% to all donations if the donor is a UK tax payer), plan to raise a minimum of £10,000 towards Kerala Chief Ministers Distress Relief Fund, involving more than 200 runners by achieving a combined distance of 10,000KM.

This is Kerala's worst floods in nearly a century, over 480 people died while over 1 million people were displaced and all 14 districts of the state, were placed on high alert. 35 out of 42 dams in the state were opened for the first time in history.[/p][p]At the height of the floods, there were 1.45 million people in more than 3,000 relief camps. All three wings of the armed forces were pressed into action for a massive rescue operation. People are still awaiting news of loved ones trapped in houses/apartments/buildings.[/p][p]Hospitals are struggling as there is no running electricity, water, and medical equipment are damaged; the flood had devastating effect on schools and public infrastructure; 57,000 hectares of agriculture crops have been destroyed.
