Organised by Secure Giving in aid of Concern India Foundation (CIF), a nonprofit charitable trust, this marathon aims at encouraging education opportunities for underprivileged kids. "I am really privileged to receive good education and I want others also to have this chance," said Anushka, who had also participated last year.
Over 1,500 children have already registered for the run. "Education is an important component in every child's development. The objective of Young Mumbai Run is to use sports as a medium to sensitise regular school-going children about the education needs of underprivileged children," said Amita Munshi, head of communications at CIF.
