In 2013, Staten Islander Sridhar Reddy ran 200 miles from Amsterdam to Brussels during his fifth “Run for Humanity.” This month, he returned to the finish line in Brussels to run again and continue spreading his simple message: Everybody has the power, every day, to do something good.
Running for Humanity, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the betterment of humanity, is undertaking its sixth run — this time, Brussels to Paris — from Aug. 6 to 18. “I am passionate about running, about humanity, and doing something physical to show the world that I care, and we should all care about each other,” the 52-year-old Reddy told Silive.com about the run.
His brother, Jayanth Reddy, and friends Dr. Phil Sigler, James Robinson and Suman Palle, will join him on the trek to Paris to provide emotional, physical and logistical support during the run. Reddy is also a world record holder: he holds the Guinness Book of World Records title of “Fastest 100 km run barefoot in ten hours and 47 minutes.”
