What is Nepal497

On April 25, 2015 a massive earthquake (7.9 on Richter Scale) hit Nepal, took over 8,000 lives, displaced millions and changed the lives of individual and families forever. Sewa is committed to raising $1 million for relief and rehabilitation work in Nepal. Nepal497 is a collective virtual walk for supporting this relief work. All the registrations and optional donations raised through this walk will go towards Sewa International's Nepal Earthquake Relief initiatives. During this walk, registered users will symbolically walk the entire length of Nepal (497 miles or 800Kms) along its Himalayan axis. Registered users can walk any where and any time (before midnight July 06, 2015 EST) to move the mile marker forward.
