Go 5K Women's Run
International Women’s Day, as always, will be celebrated around the world on March 8th, 2013 amidst heightened awareness of women’s issues across social strata and political borders. This is an important day in the world’s event calendar, when a concerted effort is made globally to focus on the role women have played in civilization. Of the sacrifices made for the nurture of their families, and of their impact in shaping history and culture. In the wake of the recent public outcry for judicial and social reform pertaining to women’s rights and the ensuing national debate on the safety and dignity of women, Women’s Day assumes even greater significance in India. To mark the occasion, it gives me immense pleasure in announcing a special Walk/Run in Hyderabad organized by the Hyderabad 10k Run Foundation during Women’s Week this year.
The Go! 5k Women’s Walk/Run was initiated to promote the health of women with a “My Health, My Concern,” motto. Last year, our maiden effort was a resounding success, saw huge participation and received tremendous support from onlookers who turned out in massive numbers to cheer, and also got widespread attention in the mainstream media. In sum, it was the fantastic kick-off to what we hope will be an ongoing annual event.
The walk/ run / bicycling, our second edition will take place on Sunday the 3rd of March 2013 at People’s Plaza on Necklace Road, Hyderabad. The walk/ run offers two routes of different lengths - 5 and 2 kilometers.
Reporting Time: 6:30 am.
Bicycling Starting time: 06:55 am.
Walk/ Run Starting time: 07:00 am.
It will bring together women from all walks of life, both young and old, in a celebration of womanhood. Come, join us for a vibrant, joyous and healthful morning as we recognize and salute women everywhere! And do spread the word; your involvement is vital in ensuring that this year too, the Go! 5k Women’s Walk /Run fulfills its promise. I hope to see you there!
