Asha-Jyothi donates $500 to Centreville High School
5K Race Funds Will Provide Increased Technology Access for Students
CENTREVILLE, Va., Oct. 23, 2018 – Centreville High School today received a donation of $500 from the non-profit organization Asha-Jyothi to support the purchase of ceiling mount projectors for special education classrooms.
This donation was made possible through the participation of student families in the 10th annual Asha-Jyothi 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, Sept. 16 at Fairfax Corner. More than 1300 registered participants ran and walked to support increased access to education and health care here in the U.S., in India and around the world.
As part of its outreach to local schools in Fairfax County, Asha-Jyothi offered to donate every dollar in race registration fees raised by participating schools back to the school plus additional funds for a total donation of $500. Thank you to those that participated!
In total, Asha-Jyothi is donating $7,760 back to local schools as a result of participation in this year’s race. This is in addition to the $106,000 Asha-Jyothi has donated through its “Your Campaign” program for the new Innovation Lab opening soon at Chantilly High School. The Innovation Lab is the first of its kind in Fairfax County, featuring 3D printing, A/V technology, robotics and a STEAM space for all students.
Asha-Jyothi looks forward to further expanding its reach and support of local schools and welcomes greater participation by the Centreville High School community in the Asha-Jyothi 5K Race/Walk in September 2019.
