Today, we can sleep peacefully at night, voice out your opinion and travel freely to any part of the country because of the Indian army who is keeping vigilance day and night. So as a tribute to our bravehearts, we are supporting Soldierathon that aims to honour the sacrifices of the armed forces by raising funds for their rehabilitation and their children’s education.
This special marathon to raise funds for the army will have a 10-kilometer run, a 5K marathon, a 21.1K race as well as special races for children, the elderly and the differently abled. All proceeds will be donated to Indian Army’s Artificial Limb Centre (ALC), for specially-abled and wounded soldiers to help them acquire state-of-the-art prosthesis at the Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre, Pune, and also for the education of the martyrs’ children.
The event will be flagged off by POPxo's Founder and CEO Priyanka Gill, and Minister of Information and Broadcasting Smriti Irani. We’re giving a shout out to all our readers to participate in the marathon and make a difference. Other esteemed personalities such as actor Gul Panag, actor Varun Sood and Home Minister Rajnath Singh will also be present.
We can never thank our soldiers enough for their sacrifice for the nation, but this is our chance to honour the armed forces in the first edition of Soldierathon. Come, join us this Sunday, March 11th, and show your appreciation to our national heroes.
