Sreenadh, Akhila, Aadrika & Anudraha

March 2020

Meet Sreenadh, Akhila, Aadrika and Anudraha - This cheerful and active family is our March member profile. You’re likely to find this family of four on the track, running laps – which might sound surprising considering both of their little girls are under age 5. But for this family, it seems like the sky is the limit. At just 4 and a half years old, Aadrika can run as many as 24 laps – that’s about 5km. Sreenadh and Akhila say that while their goal is to stay fit and active, they truly enjoy seeing their kids staying healthy and having fun.
