Continuing with its objective of supporting two significant social causes – inclusion of divyangs as equals in the society and Swachhta Drive, the JK Cement SwachhAbility Run is being organized by JK Cement in Rajasthan this year.
The run draws its inspiration from the spirit of selfless service, epitomized by The Indian Army and is the brainchild of Kargil War veteran, Major D P Singh – India’s first blade runner and a Limca Book of Records holder, who has more than 18 marathons to his credit.
The event includes two categories of runs – 5km and 3km. 5 km run is a timed race, open for all to participate. However, in order to encourage more participation towards the cause, 3 km run will be done alongside especially for school children and for anyone else who wishes to run a shorter distance. After the run, the participants including the Divyangs, will clean a designated area as a part of the Swachhta Drive.
JK Cement SwachAbility Run has also partnered with non-profit organizations like ‘The Challenging Ones’ and ‘Flags of Honour’ to drive this initiative. It has taken the shape of a revolution over the last two years with participation of over 25000 people across 12 cities in the Country.
Registrations can be done online through the event website or duly filled entry forms. Registrations will close one day prior to the run for all the cities.
