run for fun
This is the second year of participation by our students in “Run for Fun”, an inclusive running race for people with special needs, in The Wipro Chennai Marathon 2016 - a landmark marathon event in Chennai conducted on 31st January, 2016. It was a lovely sight to watch all the participants running in the marathon.
An expo was held on January 23rd prior to the run, at Chennai Trade Centre which was attended by around 5000 people. Our students participated in a short cultural programs. It was a proud event and running for charity was highlighted. Badges and stickers were distributed to the runners by our students.
On December 07, 2014, ten students from Swabodhini School for Children with Special Needs, participated in the “Run for Fun” Marathon. This was a run for people with special needs and was hosted by The Wipro Chennai Marathon 2014. This is a landmark event in which people from all corners of Chennai participate.
Prior to the Marathon, an expo was held at the Chennai Trade Center, which was attended by approximately 5000 people. Students from Swabodhini participated in the Expo and distributed stickers with the legend “Running for Swabodhini”. There were at least 1500 participants in the marathon who wore the sticker and ran. It warmed the cockles of our heart and was a very proud moment for us, to watch the runners running for a charitable cause.
Ever since the first run in 2014, Swabodhini School for Children with Special Needs, has been participating in the “Run for Fun” event, every year.
