On December 11, 2016, Sushma KC Manandhar successfully completed the Daytona 100 Ultramarathon. She wants to dedicate her 100 mile run to raise awareness about a cause that is close to her heart -- Quality education. As a mother of two and a former substitute teacher, she strongly believes that quality education is the key to a bright future for millions of children from low socio-economic backgrounds.
