Hyderabad: In its attempt to encourage children adopt an active lifestyle, Hyderabad Runners, a group of fitness enthusiasts involved in promoting running, are organising ‘Hyderabad Kids Run’ on December 24.
The event has been designed to have parents join their children in the run which has 5K run for children between the age group of nine and 12 years and 2K run for kids between two and eight years. A Kid Run for infant participants along with parents is also part of the event.
There is also an opportunity for philanthropists to sponsor children, who are pursuing education in government schools, living in orphanages and also from institutions dedicated to physical disabilities.
The Hyderabad Runners have urged sponsors to accompany the sponsored children and facilitate them in taking part in the fun run.
“We are pretty sure that taking part or facilitating such children will be even more satisfying rather than just writing a cheque or donating. It will be a wholesome experience,” said Rajesh Vetcha, founder, Hyderabad Runners.
The registration fee for the event is Rs 450 and each child will receive a T-shirt, goodie bag, certificate, medal, bib and refreshments. For details and registrations, interested persons can visit: www.hyderabadrunners.com/kidsrun/home_page.jsp.
