Children raise awareness on fitness and environment

Gurgaon: A foggy and chilly Sunday morning didn’t prevent 50 specially-abled and abandoned children from spreading their joy and exuberance within the debut version of the Alcis Family Run.

The match, which sought to advertise fitness as a circle of relatives objective, and create awareness across the setting, saw a turnout of round 1,500 contributors, who were given kits fabricated from recycled plastic.

The run, flagged off by means of cricketers Manan Vohra and Prashant Chopra, was designed specifically for families, to get mothers, fathers and their children to come back out and explore the enjoyment of working in combination.

“We didn’t need to confine fitness to a undeniable age workforce or phase of society — fitness will have to be the objective of the circle of relatives, and thus of a country. If we are have compatibility, we will work hard to save the environment too,” said Roshan Baid, managing director, Alcis Sports, who hopes to introduce the initiative in Tier-II and Tier-III cities.

One of Sunday’s major sights was the fervour shown by means of the abandoned children of iPartner India, an NGO that works to empower the marginalised. Dressed in fluorescent green T-shirts, those children had been one of the first to achieve the venue, preserving placards with tough messages on saving the surroundings. Meanwhile, specially-abled children took part with their guardians, surroundings an instance for everybody provide. “Children are perfect suited to such events as they're the future. We are very happy to be a part of this run as we are raising awareness about two stunning but maximum essential issues – fitness and setting,” said Sumedha Sharma, nation director, iPartner India.
