Dear friends,

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Berlin Marathon 2022. As many of you would know, I’ve been an avid runner for the past decade. I organized several runs in Dhaka through the Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center to promote health and well-being among young people. I ran my first full marathon last year to celebrate my 40th birthday. This year, however, I wanted to combine my passion for running with another issue that I care about deeply–climate change.

The Berlin Marathon 2022 is important for me for two reasons: first, I’ll be attempting to get my personal best time; and second, I hope to raise $2,500 for the Sierra Club, who will use the fund to make our communities better by protecting natural spaces and ensuring clean air and water for all.

I care about climate change because my country, Bangladesh, despite producing only 0.56% of global emissions, is ranked as the seventh most climate-vulnerable country in the world. Through my partnership with the Sierra Club, one of the world's most enduring and influential grassroots environmental organizations, I am hoping to draw attention to the urgent need for leadership across societies to defend everyone’s right to a healthy and sustainable world.

Thank you for helping to make my Berlin Marathon journey more meaningful. I’m deeply grateful to you for your support.

Sincerely,

Ejaj
