Run and Educate a kid Sept 26th Fairfax Corner & 5 cities in the US

I met Sekhar Puli for lunch on Friday. I had heard of Asha Jyothi as a organized that helped people in need in case of unexpected emergencies/tragedy. He told me the organization has evolved and has more global motives starting with helping underprivileged kids in India get a decent education and tapping the folks of Indian origin here who want to give a helping hand to their ancestral heritage.  Another surprising thing was that this volunteer run 501 c (3) organization prides itself on the ability to put 100% of the proceeds to the cause.

On of the events they are organizing is a 5k run to raise funds and awareness for health and education for underprivileged kids in India. They started with one venue Fairfax city Virginia and then found calls for support from other cities so it has now turned into a 5 city run on September 26th 2009.

However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
