Over a period of time, the running culture has grown. The consciousness of a healthy lifestyle is spoken of and practised in almost all homes. This has seen a spurt in the number of runs happening across the city all through the year.
This Run, now in its seventh edition, is organised by Rotary Club of Mumbai Lakers, and all proceeds (net of expenses) go towards charity. The venue of the event – the Hiranandani Complex and Powai Lake – make this an enviably scenic and accessible route and one that was favoured by more than 12,000 runners who ran the sixth edition on Jan 8, 2017.
Since 2012 when we started the first edition, our objectives have remained steadfast but have widened in scope and reach.
(a.) COMMUNITY BUILDING and bringing in a sense of harmony among people from all over Mumbai
(b.) To promote a BETTER LIFESTYLE amongst people from all walks of life and
(c.) To raise funds for SOCIAL CAUSES that deserve our attention.
The positive feedback from the runners, sponsors and everyone involved keeps us going and nudges us to do better each year. The smiles of the beneficiaries ratify our actions. We are probably the only run that contributes 100% of profits to charity.
This time, we are especially supporting the LH Hiranandani Hospital's cause for Cochlear Implants, where we will attempt to raise funds towards facilitating cochlear implant devices for children who are hard of hearing and whose lives can be changed with these devices.
Would you run to gift someone hearing?
We know you will...
So, come join us.
