For sending questions to coaches, please reach out to [email protected]

For all other inquiries, please reach out to [email protected]

IMPORTANT - Please read the following Runners etiquette and guidelines for the virtual training program

Always carry your mobile phone. This is not an option if you want to participate in this running program. Make sure that your emergency contact information is programmed into your mobile phone so that if you need help, someone can call for help from a locked phone.

Plan your route for the week well in advance - Do trial walks during the week to map out neighborhood areas conducive to run
Good candidates for running route

Route is in the local neighborhood or on a well-known trail like the W&OD or another well populated trail or park

Route has running paths or sidewalks for the most part with minimal road crossings
Route has landmarks
Route has shaded areas

Plot the route on maps.google.com. From your starting point, you can right-click and choose “measure distance” and measure out the route.

From the left side of the screen use the SHARE icon to send the link to at least one family member or a friend.

Most important: STAY WITH THE PLANNED ROUTE and resist the urge to change. If route has to be changed, inform family or friend immediately.

You can use a free App like Runkeeper to track your distance or use interval training for run/walk if you do not have a GPS watch.

Get a waist belt such as this: https://www.amazon.com/FlipBelt-Level-Terrain-Waist-Pouch/dp/B00JF9DU4U/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=2RUL129NSE3HS&dchild=1&keywords=fitbelt+for+women&qid=1591323065&sprefix=fit+belt%2Caps%2C147&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExRUNBOThBNkkwQjdJJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTQxNDExMTJUWkNWVkxWQzdLNSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMjcyNTEwMlpMT0hVMVpWSTdMMiZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

Always carry something small to eat – a gel, some gummy bears, crackers, peanuts etc., even for short distances.

Think about carrying coconut water instead of/in addition to regular water for hydration as it is a natural source of salts to replenish what is lost in sweat.

Always run in the direction AGAINST the traffic, i.e., facing the traffic, if you have to share the road with vehicles. So run on the LEFT side of the road.

Wear bright color clothing when you run. Let the others on the road see you.

Do not wear headphones. If you absolutely must, use for one ear only and keep the volume low. Not wearing headphones helps you to listen to your breathing and your steps so you can run gently if you are stomping too hard and slow down if you are breathing hard. This is especially important for new runners.

Do not dart across a main road. Push the button to trigger a walk signal wherever it is available. Use it to take a short break!

Women runners: Please leave your jewelry at home, especially those with sentimental value. Wear silicone rings instead of gold or diamond wedding rings for a run.

Please come and join the training program and be part of a great community.
Thanks

Dear Donor/Supporter,

We hope you are doing well and in good spirits during this holiday season getting through the unimaginably difficult year. AIMS India Foundation would like to say Thank you for all who stood by the organization during these difficult times.

Even though COVID-19 had a tremendous impact in our lives throughout this year, AIMS were able to execute many COVID-19 emergency projects locally and globally through our partner organizations through our GoFundMe campaign and other means of support from our generous donors. There is still an abundant need for rehabilitation projects that will help the families to get back on their lives. For details visit https://aimsindia.net/covid19.aspx.

AIMS India Foundation has this obligation of executing annually recurring projects to support Student Education & Nutrition through our SDC / SLC programs in multiple places and supporting thousands of students at various grades annually. To continue these programs next year, we need a minimum of $50,000 annually. For details, visit https://aimsindia.net/donate.aspx

We have also executed women empowerment projects and infrastructure improvement projects such as Water body restoration etc. For details on various projects for the past two decades, check out at https://aimsindia.net/projects.aspx

We are proud to share that we were able to complete our annual (Virtual) Marathon training program 2020 and helped 50+ runners to accomplish their goal of completing a half/full marathon successfully without compromising on social distancing guidelines. We have expanded our target to include 20+ young runners in the ages between 10-18 to complete their first ever 5K/10K/half marathons. We are grateful to our wonderful coaches, amazing volunteers and of course our beloved runners who believed in us and made it happen. For details, visit https://aimsindia.net/run/default.aspx

As we approach the start of a new year 2021, we would like to remind and request the donor community to continue the support our giving back to community projects and also welcome anyone to bring in any projects that you would like to lead and/or execute that is near and dear to you. We love this program as much as you do, but we are reminded of the purpose of running this non-profit organization and with YOUR help, we have given a hopeful future to thousands of families.

This being a year end, we would like to remind that under the CARES Act, there is a provision to write-off a $300 donation that can be used for tax deduction during your tax filing. For details, check https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/23/cares-act-added-a-300-charitable-contribution-deduction-heres-how-it-works.html. There are multiple ways you can donate to the projects.
