Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, in association with its Rotaract Club and the Rotary Bangalore, Indiranagar (District 3190), hosted the first edition of its fundraiser, ‘Life Dart 5K Run’.

The donation raised through the event was given to BOSCO, which is a non-governmental organisation. The college plans to continue the event annually following the feat achieved this year.’

The 5 km run, that started from SIBM’s campus, encouraged young philanthropists and participants from professional institutions to lend a helping hand to society.

More than 300 people took part in it. Pallavi Belani, Event Coordinator, quoted, “In the race of accomplishing ourselves, we made a small attempt from our side in reminding the world about the things we should care about.

When 300 people were running, lives of hundreds of kids were also changing. When these people were running, those kids were truly winning.”

Aditya Chiruthapudi, Coordinator, Social Responsibility Committee, said, “The institutional Rotaract Club at SIBM-B was able to pull off this novel idea and we will look back at this initiative with pride that we were able to raise substantial monetary aid for BOSCO. We are grateful for all the support we got for this event.”
