SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Walk a Mile → Raise a Dollar!

YJA is excited to announce a NEW ADDITION to the Walk-A-Thon!

For every mile that you walk, YJA will donate $1 based on the miles that you log in the participation form.

As we raise money for Akshaya Patra, set a goal of how many miles you want to walk/run and how much you want to fundraise for Akshaya Patra from friends and family to add to YJA's contribution. Donations can now continue to be given after May 22nd; however, the participation form will be closed on that day!

Register at yja.org/walkathon today and start walking!

Young Jains of America, Young Jains of Singapore, & Young Jains United Kingdom are co-hosting the FIRST ever international, self-paced, charity walk-a-thon! As we raise money for Akshaya Patra, set a goal of how many miles you want to walk/run from May 1st through May 22nd and how much you want to fundraise for Akshaya Patra from friends and family to add to YJA's contribution.

Akshaya Patra’s mission is that no child should be deprived from education because of hunger. They achieve this mission through their mid-day meal program which attempts to feed millions of children in India who zeal to learn and achieve.

This is a wonderful opportunity for YOU to contribute to bettering someone’s future and raising money to motivate and nourish children in India. YJA, YJS, & YJUK endeavors are to fundraise so that children in India can pursue an education and to create awareness on world hunger! Reach out to your family and friends to donate (directing them to our website) as you are walking for a cause. We will not be keeping track of your progress on the miles you walk/run, and will give you the autonomy on that. Let’s make a difference! Please email events@yja.org if you have any questions.
