The Run Category was mainly of two types – 5 KM and 10 KM, both starting at 6:00 A.M. with a small interval of 5 minutes. It was officially the second run for Bhumi in the city of Joy and Bhumi made sure that it turned out to be a big event at the end of the day.
“Happiness for me was when a sixty year old lady came to me and spoke about joining us as a volunteer to support equal education for all children” told one of the volunteers.

A big round of applause for NTT Data, Ola, Zoomcar, Sportiz, Infinity Think Tank for supporting the cause which will ignite many minds across the country.
