Last week, we had announced the uniqueness of a run combined with a trippy dance routine in these pages through the Goregaon Sports Club-organised GSC SOS 10.0 timed run. The vibrant event saw over 2,200 participants in action last Sunday, running and doing the complimentary Zumba (an aerobic fitness programme based on movements inspired by Latin American dance music) session simultaneously.

But more importantly, the organisers contributed to a special cause on the day, which happened to be World Cancer Day. GSC felicitated 25 young cancer survivors from the Tata Memorial Hospital and handed out a cheque of '1 lakh through Dr Suraj Suchak (oncologist, representing the Malad Medical Association) to Syed Jafri, senior public relations officer, Tata Memorial Hospital, to assist the hospital's cancer prevention activities. It's said that sport is a great healer. The GSC guys proved it!
