He has so far raised $5,000, he was awarded a $500 grant from Health & Science Innovations as part of the YiQ Scholars program, and he will get $2,000 from the Children's Museum on Nov 11th along with National Power of Children Award. He started 3 chapters of TheSnapLink (Ohio, Illinois and Mumbai) and inducted board members - Dr. Gary Krishnan (Eli Lilly), Dr. Anne Marie Hake (Eli Lilly), Dr. Ajay Chawla (Physician from Ohio), Ninad Thanawala (Student Cornell), Rupal Thanawala (Accenture), Harsh Bhimjyani (Technology Lead, Real Dot) & Shivane Chawla (Global Youth Chapter Leader). Rahil's Snaplink project has also been submitted to Accenture Healthtech Innovation Challenge for additional round of funding.
