A run for women

A run for women

The 2015 Contours Women’s Day Run saw over 2000 participants coming together to participate in the 5K and 10K categories. The participants as well as their friends and family had a wonderful experience at the run, with a range of fun activities organised by Contours and Myntra. The run started with a warm-up session of zumba and hip-hop. There was even a mini fair with tattoo stalls, a fun props stall as well as a quizzing centre to add to the festivities. The men from Runners High showed their support and enthusiasm by performing a medley of dances.

Chandra Gopalan, Founder Director, Contours India, said, “The run was first organised in 2010 to create an awareness about the issues faced by women. We also wanted people to come together for a cause while having fun at the same time. We are extremely pleased to have received such an incredible response for our sixth edition. We hope to continue this trend and have a bigger run in 2016. It was heartening to see the number of women, most of them being fitness enthusiasts, coming together and running for a cause. We feel that health and fitness are essential to looking good.”

Mike Holland, CEO, Embassy Office Parks, said, “What a great way to spend a morning in such a clean environment, celebrating all the women in our lives.” The funds raised from the event were donated to Shristi Special Academy, which trains persons with disabilities (PWDs) for the Special Olympics.
