Vikas Ahuja

My name is Vikas Ahuja and I am excited to get the opportunity to run the 2019 Boston Marathon for the Town of Ashland. I have lived in Ashland for 12 years and am grateful for this opportunity to be fundraising for several key projects for the town.
I started running in 2013 and have completed 2 half marathons in last 2 years.Running the full 26.2 miles, that too on a prestigious stage like Boston Marathon is an exciting, and at the same time, nervous proposition and I am looking forward to that.
As a runner for the Town of Ashland, I will be able to raise money for our community through the Ashland BAA Grant Program. All the money raised will go directly to supporting educational, cultural, and sports activities in our town.
In the past, BAA Grants have been awarded to the following groups: the Ashland Schools, the Clocker Club, the Ashland Council on Aging, the Ashland Day Committee, the Ashland Fire Department Safety Program, the Ashland Police Youth Boxing Club, Ashland Youth Soccer, Ashland Pop Warner, Ashland Girl Scouts, Action for Healthy Kids, and the Ashland Historical Commission.
My goal is to raise $3000 for the Town of Ashland. It’s an honor to be able to give back to our community and support our town through this fundraising.
Thanks in advance for your support,
Vikas Ahuja
