Help save lives by participating in this marathon
Wouldn’t you be encouraged to run with increased vigour if you knew it’s bringing an ailing child some good? The Thane Heart Project is a marathon run and walk that ensures with every kilometre a participant completes, a hundred bucks is donated towards a child’s heart surgery. To participate in this run, one has to be at least eight years old. There are three categories — the five kilometre walk or run, the 10-km run and the 21-km timed run.
Runners can look forward to a finisher crafted medal, trophies (if they win), e-certificates, photographs, medical support, refreshments during the run, a fun zumba session before the run begins and words of gratitude from parents of children whose surgeries will be taken care of by the run.
