Organization has four pillars ( healthy life style, education support for everyone, Fight with hunger and environment protection). Team is organizing BR Giving( food drop/cooking) for last 100+ weeks. Volunteers celebrate their special days (Birthdays/Anniversaries) by cooking for shelters with kids.

Been with Best Runners USA from past 5+ Yrs..Great thing about this non-profit organization is about its flat structure of the organization. Everyone encourages each other and also perform volunteer services in USA and Abroad. Health is one of the important factor in one's life and Best Runner's make sure that all the volunteer's do proper exercise and encourage each other to maintain their health. I am volunteering with other non-profit organizations, but no other non-profit organization is so close on how transparent this organization does with its financial reporting. Hats off to Best Runners!!!

I am writing this blog on behalf of Rahul. Rahul is a Grade 11 student at SRKM High School, W.B, India. I am an alumnus of the same school.
======================================================================
Situation: - Rahul is a brilliant student in Grade 11 in SRKM High School, West Bengal, India. He is the captain of the school soccer team, and his dream was to play for the Indian national soccer team. Suddenly, everything is over. He lost his two legs in a ruthless road accident. He was standing on the roadside, waiting for a bus when a big truck hit him. Fortunately, he survived. But unfortunately, both his legs had to be amputated. To be able to walk again, he needs prosthetic limbs. The cost is about 5 lakh Indian rupees (about USD 8000). He and his parents are not able to afford the cost.

Best Runners Team’s involvement- Sundar, my friend is a very active member of the Best Runners team. He introduced me to the BR Team to help Rahul. Best Runners is a very well organized, transparent, and process-oriented organization. Sundar had uploaded all required documents to the BR portal. They had done a few internal meetings to discuss the possibility of funding the case. They had updated me from time to time about the progress and finally, the fund was approved by the Best Runners Management team and transferred the money to Rahul.

Here are a few words from Rahul with tears of joy – “It was my dream after a heartbreaking accident if I can walk again. It is impossible without the BR team’s help and you helped me to fulfill my dream. Still, I cannot believe that I can walk now. I cannot play soccer for my school again, but I am focusing on my study to move ahead in life. THANK YOU, BEST RUNNERS TEAM, FOR YOUR SUPPORT.”

Best Runners(BR) is one of the organization which i saw so much commitment that it gives to charity around the globe . for ex: i requested funds for few students who needs their financial help and one autism society school and BR did a great job by supporting and follow up on this to see how the funds are managed/utilized.

Infact, In one of the Chennai, India disaster for the floods which happend for couple of years back BR did a great job by coordinating who is helping the needy people in the Chennai, India and sending the funds directly to the point of contact person and make sure all the funds goes to the needy instead of sending to any organization and error free of utilizing the funds.

Coming to Local in USA Best Runners have so many food shelters contacts which team takes every week taking care of their list of shelter needs and volunteers does a good job of very well coordinating based on who is going this week to shelter and go to the super market store and purchase the perishable/ non-perishable items and deliver then to one of the food shelters. While donating the food items in the shelter they feel so happy by accepting it. Infact 2 times my daughters involved in the purchasing the stuff from grocery store and donated the food items to the Shelter and my kids felt so happy that they donated the food items to needy people.

BR is so well managed organization even duiring the pandamic also they raised quite good amount of funds by conducting the virtual run and very transparant in funds management and take all the people input incase if it is supporting towards any request , People have so much belief in this organization based on the volunteers and accepting the trusted needy people across the globe. Even during the pandemic BR donated lot of financial/food items India as well as here in USA. Best Runners is for Health / Charity and during past years BR supported many people who were needed financial due to their health issues as well.

I always have great support towards Best Runner Organization.

I have been volunteering with Best Runners (BR) for just over a year and it has been a great journey. I have been involved in supporting local economically disadvantaged families for education and food. You have so many other BR volunteers to help you with a project. The volunteers are the main strength of BR. We recently had our annual charity run and more than 100 volunteers helped on the event day. Every volunteer works hard to help the community. It's great to help in shelters, schools, etc in the local community. BR has become an extended family for me. Looking forward to volunteer for many initiatives/projects organized by BR.
