Bruce Katlin running a marathon to raise funds for Satya Niketan School in India

In one of my postings yesterday, I mentioned Bruce Katlin & his wife Terry Graziano, who are training to run a marathon to raise funds for Satya Niketan School.

Well, I have just received an email from him saying that it is the Portland Marathon that they will run on October 7. Here is the bulk of his message:

"My friends Rebecca and Chandra Kant Shourie have dedicated their lives, (their lives have been threatened just for teaching English to these children!) to providing the only English education at the school that they started, The Satya Niketan School (Home of Truth) to the poorest children who are considered the "lower caste". Some of these children can not afford the $4.95 monthly fee to attend classes.

"The conditions in the Nagod region are difficult and we are asking for your contributions so that the school can purchase a much needed generator to power the school's lights and sole computer. We need to raise $3000 by October 7th. Please contribute whatever you can afford via ITAG:

To learn more about the Shouries, the school and what Terry and I are doing to raise money through our marathon, please visit our website at:

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best Regards,

Bruce Katlin
