“Everyone knows that running is the best exercise to get into shape,
But ever thought the pleasure and happiness of running for a cause
To spread smiles and learning all around, to derive the multiple benefits”

Lal Bahadur Shastri Institute of Management organized the mini marathon Run for Education on 28th October 2018 in association with Delhi Police and Jaagriti- Spreading smiles, an NGO that acts as an abode for the underprivileged children and provides preschool and post-school education to them.

The event was also partnered with Safe Express, Coca-Cola, Times of India, and Ayushman Hospital and Health Services. We organized “Run for Education” to remove huge disparities among the lower and upper sections of society. The funds thus collected were contributed towards the education of these underprivileged children.

The 6.5 km long run across Dwarka was graced bythe presence of the Chief Guest – Mr Madhup Tewari, Joint Commissioner Delhi Police – Western Range, Guest of Honour – Mr Anto Alphonse, DCP, Delhi Police, Dwarka District, and Mr Mudit Shastri, Member, Board of Trustees, LBSIM. The Chief guest appreciated the initiative taken by the Institute.

As the day unravelled, it had race in three categories- Males, Females, and Senior citizen with the fastest finisher being 21 mins setting a new record than the previous ones. We also had a race for kids below the ages of 10. All the winners were recognised, and participants praised for their contribution. The prizes included medals, certificates, trophies and cash prizes for the first three positions. The top 100 Finishers were also awarded medals.

The marathon ended on an ecstatic note of yet another year of LBSIM organizing Run for Education 3.0 with a promise to uphold the societal responsiveness with boosted levels of dedication.
