Through CTM 2014 we are creating awareness and raising funds for Anbu Illam, a registered organization started in 2007 located in Manali, Chennai. The home looks after orphans and physically handicapped children. For the past several years the home has been struggling to find funds to move to a more spacious facility to accommodate the increasing number of kids in the home. We request kind souls among the runners who feel for this cause to extend their support through a small contribution. Together we can make a big difference in the lives of these less privileged children. Choose the "Support the children of Anbu Illam" add-on ticket while registering to extend your help. Below a group photo of the Anbu Illam kids during the 2013 Chennai Trail Marathon:
