A Run for Kids!

This Sunday was just very special. It all began with a idea which was circulated by one of our riders during a casual bike ride. The idea was that we encourage kids staying at nearby villages to run by organising a race for them. Little by little we put together the logistics and requirements for the race and finally today was the D day.
These kids belonged to economically weaker backgrounds and took to preparing for the race like it was an olympic to be run and prepared hard for it.

It was joy to see them come for the race in good numbers and run so enthusiastically!

We had organized 2 runs! One for 12 years and below age group and one for 13 years and above age group. Distance to be covered was 2 kilometers for the younger ones and 3 kilometers for the elder ones.

Here are some of the clicks.
