Running around the world in 7 days is one of the most physically demanding challenges one can face.
During a 7-day period, competitors will will run a marathon (42.2km) on each continent. Eating and sleeping will be on flights. Challenges include fatigue, jet lag, sleep deprivation and the stress of temperature fluctuations ranging from +40°C to -50°C.
7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days - at 60 years old! And all to help kids in India. How does she do it?
The only way I can keep up this pace is by taking AWAKE and ASLEEP

Working on TV series like 'Supernatural', I need to be on top form all the time. The problem is, I have to take a lot of flights across timezones, so regular jetlag was a real problem for me - both for my health and potentially for my career.
After being on AWAKE and ASLEEP for just a month, I found that I got much more energy when I needed it and I slept better as well– and it’s great to know they are completely natural and non-addictive.
As an actress and a mother, I was concerned to get quality sleep when I was working late night hours at the theatre, followed by early mornings when I must look after my toddler. Since taking AWAKE and ASLEEP, I have felt very energized throughout the day, especially leading up to performance time. They have ensured that even though my hours of rest are cut down, I get quality sleep!
These products are an excellent way to make the most out of your job while not compromising your health. It is so comforting to know these are not on medications with dangerous side effects. I would highly recommend AWAKE and ASLEEP to anyone who works hours outside of a 9-5 job.
In India, of the nearly 200 million children aged six to fourteen years, more than half do not complete eight years of elementary education; they either never enroll or they drop out of school. The Schools on Wheels program is a pre-school preparation program that puts children on an educational track and keeps them from joining the ranks of child labour.
Plan International India works with municipal schools (government-run public schools) to ensure quality education and to ensure that children maintain their enrollment in school.
They do so through the School Partnership Program, which ensures quality education in formal schools. It is through all of these initiatives, including Schools on Wheels, that Plan International India ensures a holistic and sustainable approach to supporting education of all children, especially girls, living in Mumbai.
