In its 5th yr, Powai Run back on Jan 3

For the fifth year, the Hiranandani Powai Run in association with the Times of India is back on January 3.

 

Organized by the Rotary Club of Mumbai Lakers (RCML), the event is a fund-raising initiative for the club to support its projects like village electrification, building of check dams, education and mid-day meal programmes.

 

Club president, Vikram Chopra said, “We work very hard to help our lesser fortunate fellow beings and intend to complete the circle of help by not only training them to be useful, but also helping them to get jobs, thereby giving the push that all of us need to climb the ladder.”

 

In the past three years, the run has largely been a community initiative, which sees participants from residential complexes in and around Powai. Deepak H Darynani, CEO of Hiranandani Powai Run, said, “We are expecting 9,000 participants this year, last year, there were 8,000.” The event is held in three categories—half marathon (21km) for runners, 10-km run for the health conscious, 4-km for walk and a run for fun and charity. Last year, a post-run carnival was added to the run. This year, cafes, musicians and dancers are being introduced. tnn
