Team Asha is a fundraising branch of Asha for Education where teams of runners help raise funds for Asha projects by participating in races like runs, marathons, half marathons or relay marathons. So far, more than 800 men and women have successfully completed various races and collectively raised more than $1,500,000 over the past ten years helping educate hundreds of underprivileged young children.
Asha UFlorida became part of Team Asha in 2007 when participating in the 15k Gate River Run in Jacksonville for the first time on March 10th 2007. It is the largest 15k with more than 20,000 runners and one of the top running events in the United States. This 15 km run is one of the avenues through which our chapter raises awareness and funds for the educational projects in India. In the past 10 years, about $175,000 have been raised with the participation of over 500 runners who all completed Gate River Run. Team Asha UFlorida helps all registered participants on this momentous journey to get ready for the race by providing professional training and logistical support to help the runners complete the run successfully every year.
