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 children from oppressive backgrounds who trained with us. It was amazing to get back on 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 at one of the water stations, but Babu Sir asked all the seniors and myself to come one day before the run because some arrangements still needed to be made. Once I reached there, I relaxed, freshened up, and walked to my old school. On the day of the run, I got up early and got ready to volunteer at the water station. I really enjoyed being a volunteer because I had a lot of fun with others who were with me. After the run, I came to have my breakfast. It was a nice experience for me because it was my first time volunteering for a marathon.
