Rahul, who is from Wednesbury, is an active volunteer and keen runner.
He has completed 100 half marathons and 22 marathons for charity – an incredible achievement!
He’s representing Shree Geeta Bhawan Temple in Handsworth where he is a trustee and sports co-ordinator, after starting volunteering there more than 20 years ago.
Rahul also volunteers for GOODGYM – a charitable organisation where you can do good deeds and get fit at the same time.
And if he wasn’t busy enough, he’s a leader with The Active Well Being Society’s Big Run Project, which organises regular running and walking sessions for beginner runners.
Rahul says: “When I first saw the email saying I had been selected as Batonbearer in the Queen’s Baton Relay in Sandwell I was very, very, very, happy.
“It’s a once in a lifetime achievement. It’s like a dream come true. I am over the moon to represent our community, volunteers and running groups in this relay. I am really looking forward to it.”
