Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon - 17th January 2010

11 students along with 12 staff members participated and successfully completed the 6.00 kms Dream Run in the 2010 Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon. This year, the marathon was a grand event for us what with the support of corporates like JP Morgan Asset Management, Dhanalakshmi Bank, State Bank of India, DB Realty, Hotel Le Meridien, Mumbai and 250 Individual Runners!!!

The Marathon was kicked off by a press conference on 10th January 2010 by Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao and hosted by Hotel Le Meridien, Mumbai. Shahid and Amrita are great human beings who, in a split second decision, agreed to be our celebrity supporters and who genuinely believe in doing good work. They were also present on the marathon day to flag us off on the Dream Run on 17th January 2010.

The Dream Run was a rocking event with Bhangda Dholwallas, Stilt Walkers and Flubber the Clown entertaining not only us but runners of many other teams through the entire Dream Run! Everybody literally danced their way through the 6 km run rather than walk! More often than not joined by other participating teams!!!

The fantastic success of the event and the support we received from all our corporate and individual supporters have given us the confidence to work harder and achieve bigger goals.
