Symbiosis International University, Pune has been into organizing various events emphasizing healthy lifestyle since its inception. In line with the above, SCMS - Noida follows in the footsteps of its parent organization and has proposed a fitness run in the capital city of Uttar Pradesh. This is the first step towards a Pan India event, wherein we plan to emphasize the relevance of health through education. We have taken this initiative with the concept of “Run for Health: Run for Healthy India”. (Swasth Bharat – Sashakt Bharat)
The Fitness Run is scheduled to be held on April 4th, 2015 from 6:00 a.m. - 7:30 a.m. The starting point of the event would be K.D. Singh Babu Stadium, Parivartan Chowk, Lucknow. The event is a 5 km run for both males and females. The number of participants expected is approximately 1000.
The event is expected to be flagged off by dignitaries from the Uttar Pradesh Government. The Chief Secretary, U.P., has tentatively agreed to be present. We are seeking the presence of the Chief Minister too, but it has not been confirmed. We will confirm the above as soon as possible.. The event will get a fair amount of media attention as also will generate interest as the route will be through high density areas of Lucknow.We are also organizing a press conference on the 3rd of March to publicize the event. We expect about 20 odd media persons to be present for the same.
