Ghar ghar mein Pinkathon!

Every year I run for the cause of breast cancer awareness,a cause supported by the Pinkathon team and Maximus( Founded by Reema Sanghavi (Managing Director) & Milind Soman (Director) in 2008).

In fact ,their 10k run was my first ever run in 2012(you can read all about it here). I was a little sad about missing it this year as I was travelling to Delhi for a family wedding on the same dates.But then,something interesting happened ,the organisers came up with a new format.Milind Soman,who is the founder of this run 'Pinkathon',a run for breast cancer awareness in women,now wants to take it to our homes and urge women to run.The company has started organising these 3 km short runs in the premises of a building or a society .They get trainers ,click pictures ,post it on Facebook and urge more and more women to join the cause.Aptly named ,'Ghar,ghar main Pinkathon',was organised in my building on the 23rd of November.

Specialised Trainer from Striders was organised to help us do warm-ups and stretches ,before and after the run.Very few men but quite a few women turned up for the event and the whole event was wrapped up in about half an hour.The run over,the pictures clicked and spark of fitness was ignited amongst the women,which was the purpose of this run.Kudos to the team!

Let's see what it looked like;
