Concept Welcome to the world of the girl child, promising yet gloomy, hopeful, yet in despair. Such is the tragic irony of fate, that a beautiful creation such as the girl child is today one of the gravest concerns facing humanity, with a host of summits, conferences and events held for the cause, with topmost world leaders pledging their support. The fate of the girl child hangs in balance today. If we do not act now to stop female infanticide, it may be too late. Through this marathon, we would like to promote the cause – to pledge our support to Save the Girl Child – and to bring like minded people on board to work with us
Why Femina Marathon? Femina, India’s largest and most widely read women’s magazine, has been the definitive life and lifestyle guide for the progressive woman. Their ‘Femina Run for a Cause’ aims at bringing to light different issues and the very first run is to support the cause of the girl child. To be held on 16th March, 2014, this run is open to all. Participants can opt for a 3km or a 6km run and also donate to the charity NGO KETTO Save The Children as part of this initiative. Through the ‘Femina Run for a Cause’, Ketto hopes to raise funds for Save Our Sisters (SOS). SOS, an initiative of Save the Children India works to prevent trafficking of women and children from commercial sexual exploitation. The program is designed and operates in sync with the internationally recognized strategies of ‘Prevention’, ‘Protection’ and ‘Prosecution’.
Come, run with us. Run to support the cause, run to support the future… From Left to right Ali Quli Mirza, Anand Behede, Manav Gohil, Kunal Kapoor & Pooja Misra
