About the event
MILES FOR MEALS
Meet at Holland Park on Saturday, October 2, 2021 and join us in running 3 kilometers to raise money and awarness towards an incredible cause.
This initiative has been brewing in the Curious Campus HQ for a while. We firmly believe that kids should learn to use their spare time to give to others as much as pursue chess, sport or debating. We are therefore proud to launch, MILES FOR MEALS, our inaugural 3K in Holland Park on 2nd October 2021
Inspired by Marcus Rashford who has highlighted food poverty we are proud to support Akshaya Patra.The aim is for kids to sign up and run 3k to raise money through sponsorship for the Akshay Patra feeding programmes, which are run to alleviate child poverty and encourage education. We then would like the kids to come and see how the money they have raised is spent. The Akshaya Patra Foundation (UK) will allow the kids in small batches to come see the kitchens where the food is cooked and then distributed to those in need. So it is not just a charity run but a rare opportunity for kids to see how a charity works and the people it helps! Please sign up and help us make 'learning to give' an essential part of growing up
Each day, millions of children around the world are deprived of a basic, nutritious and hygenic meal. The cost of providing a that nutritious meal to a child is less than a cup of coffee in Central London. A guaranteed fresh meal during their day at school, is a motivating factor for children to come to school and stay at school.
A core ethos of Curious Campus is to help kids become mindful about those less fortunate and effecting positive change along the way. MILES FOR MEALS does just that. It gets out kids out of the house with some exercise and fresh air, and helps donate to the most ambitious mid-day meal movement called Akshaya Patra.
Curious Campus passes on 100% of the proceeds received on our site to Akshaya Patra. Please click here to donate directly to The Akshaya Patra Foundation (UK), should you wish to. But, sign up to the run nonetheless!!
The entry ticket to the run is FREE. You could also buy a ticket where the price of the ticket suits a specific need per child. Click on the prices to learn more about each donation category. We have a modest target of £2500 to be raised through the inaugural MILES FOR MEALS event.
The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a non-profit organisation in India that operates a school lunch programme. The organisation was established in 2000. It aims to counter classroom hunger and aid in education of children. It feeds 1,800,907 children every day across India.
