Run baby Run!

New age India’s way of showing that we care for the less privileged is to have a Run on the streets, I meant a Marathon. In the past few years we have seen many marathons happening in many of the cities of our country-Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Pune. Thanks to the sponsorers the organizers do get a lot of publicity and crowd attraction ofcourse, we can’t forget the prize money. Looks like Corporate India is taking initiate to support such causes. Why won’t they right? They get the soft corner with people with clear white publicity. Well at the end the cause is more important than the way and why it’s done for. If you aren’t doing anything this week end (26th Nov)in Pune pick up your snickers and Run…..for a Cause…ofcourse.Happy Weekend!!!

Hi again Steve
I forget to mention that I was thrilled to know how many people took part in the run...
and such a good cause the money went towards!
That is just great!
