In the last two years, though we had planned for Ananda Yana, we had to cancel the event due to the pandemic. The event usually raises funds for nutritional needs and running shoes for the children from oppressive backgrounds who are trained with us. It was amazing to get back to the track. It has been a great motivation for many of the children, to participate in the 5K and 10K events.
The run was on June 5th, 2022 in Bengaluru. I was selected as a volunteer in one water station. But Babu Sir took me 4th because there were some arrangements to be done for the run, not only me but also all the seniors were supposed to arrange. It was 2hrs of travel from Snehagram to Snehadaan so I left at 9 am from here in our jeep. Once I reached there I relaxed and got freshened up and went for a walk to my old school. I got up early and got ready to go to the water station as a volunteer. I really enjoyed being a volunteer because I had a lot of fun with others who were with me. So after the run, I came to have my breakfast. I expected, there would be better food but unfortunately, there was nothing that I had expected I ate them and got ready to come back to Snehagram. On the way back, I came by bus and there were some of my juniors and two of my seniors to guide me. So traveling on the bus after the morning run made me more tired and after reaching Snehagram I had my lunch and went to relax. But it was a nice experience for me because it was my first time volunteering in a marathon.
