Tata Mumbai Marathon
With a tagline of ‘Be Better’, the Tata Mumbai Marathon not only brings the best running event to the citizens, but also brings out the best in them. It also gives many NGO’s a platform to talk about their cause and raise awareness & funds. This year, we participated in TMM 2020 and raised funds through various mediums like charity bibs, corporates & individual fundraisers. These funds will help educate children, improve healthcare, provide livelihood opportunities etc.
Post registration every Ngo was allocated with a few bibs and through that we raised close to 2,00,000.
Next were Individual fundraisers we had 2 of our Aftercare children participated and raise funds for themselves & children like them. These 2 boys came from aftercare homes with zero training and experience for marathon with the help of striders who trained them with no cost. It was also their first exposure to any marathon and they raised close to Rs. 80,000 We also had Ms. Farhana Vohra our constant supporter who ran 10Km and raised funds for us & Mr. Satyajeet Mazumdar Head of Advocacy ran 21 KMs and raised close to 2,00,000 for us.
Overall through Individual Fundraisers we raised close to 4,00,000.
Through Corporate partners – ICICI Prudential Life Insurance & P&G Health, we raised approximately 10,00,000Rs.
