Seven Days, Seven Marathons, Seven Continents...


...in celebration of her 60th birthday. 

Dr. Pushpa Chandra has run over 100 marathons and Ultramarathon races equal to over 500 marathons, and is one of only 21 women (and the only Canadian) in the world who is a "North Pole Grand Slammer"-- she has run marathons or longer races on all seven continents plus the North Pole. She has run in the most extreme landscapes such as Antarctica, the Sahara and Gobi Desert, Mount Everest, Madagascar, and the North Pole. 

For her 60th birthday, she will be conquering all seven continents again, in one week. Dr. Chandra will be attempting the most ambitious endeavor of the World Marathon Challenge, running seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. 

In celebration of this marathon, Dr. Chandra will be running in support of the School on Wheels program, facilitated by Plan International India. 

The School on Wheels project in India aims to improve the quality of education for underprivileged children. The key element for the project's success is a bus designed as a mobile class room to provide alternate educational facilities to street children up to the age of 14.

Education is one of the most powerful tools in breaking the cycle of poverty. Providing this vulnerable group of children with access to education is an integral step in helping them realize their full potential.
