A run for the cause of children deprived of education

Hardships, often, end up robbing these children of opportunities to grow into a better human being. With this thought in mind, Lal Bahadur Shastri Institute of Management, Sector 11, New Delhi organised a 6.2 km long run -- “Run for Education” – on October 20 in association with the Delhi Police, Jaagriti and Choti Si Khushi. 

Jaagriti and Choti Si Khushi are the two NGOs working for the underprivileged children and their holistic development providing them with proper education and guidance. 

The goal of the event was to raise fund for these deprived children of our society so that they could get access to better educational facilities and realise their dreams. 

The 6.2 km long run across Dwarka took place in the presence of Anto Alphonse, DCP, Dwarka District who was chief guest on the occasion. The inaugural session started with paying homage to Late Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Ji with garlands and remembering him for his noble ideas. This was followed by speeches by the director of the institute, Dr DK Srivastava and the chief guest, Anto Alphonse.  

The event witnessed footfall of more than 300 people with enthusiastic participants in all age groups running for a single goal – to contribute to the education of the children from underprivileged section of the society. The event had races in four categories – adult male, adults female, children below 10 years and senior citizens (above the age of 60). 

All the winners were recognised and felicitated with medals and trophies. Children were given special gift hampers sponsored by Classmate. T-shirts were given to all as a token of participation. The first three rank holders of each category were given cash prizes as well.

Addressing to the crowed the DCP Alphonse called the effort to organise run for promotion of education as praiseworthy. He said it would give a boost to the other efforts being made by the social organisations like Choti Si Khushi and Jagriti to spread education in the underprivileged section of the society. This is our responsibility to support such efforts.”

Children from the underprivileged sections of the society associated with the NGO were also took part in run alongside the other volunteers of the NGOs. Secretary of Choti Si Khushi, Namitha Chaudhry, said, “This was a wonderful experience running for a cause for those who were also running. This was an inspirational event for people like us who are trying to take some small steps in spreading education.”
