Life Dart 5km Run 2017
India has the highest number of school drop-outs and one of the major reasons for this is poverty. A lot of the children are underprivileged and do not have even the basic necessities to complete their schooling. Life Dart 5K Run is a fund-raiser event that is organised to help the cause of children welfare, well-being and education.
Life Dart 5K Run is organised by the Social Responsibility Committee and Rotaract Club of Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Bengaluru in association with the Rotary Club of Indiranagar (District 3190).
The first edition of the event was conducted in 2015. Last year, in 2016, we raised funds of over Rs. 1,96,000 and the contribution was made towards the Make a Difference (MAD), an NGO which works towards betterment of children’s lives in child care homes and shelters.
Life Dart 2017 will be conducted on the 29th January 2017. This year, we are associating ourselves with Magic Bus. Magic Bus is an NGO which steers children towards a better life with better awareness, life skills, and opportunities, in the journey from childhood to livelihood. Magic Bus completed 17 years in 2016 and today the program is running successfully in 22 states, reaching out to 400,000 children in India
The 5 km run will start from SIBM, Bengaluru. The registration cost will be Rs. 250 per ticket. The day is set to start at 6:30 AM with several warm-up activities such as Zumba/aerobics followed by the run. After the run, the winners will be awarded prizes. There will be prizes for the top three runners and the top runner in the women’s category.
Through this event, we, the students of SIBM, Bengaluru hope to do our part in bringing about awareness for the cause of improving the lives of the underprivileged children and also highlighting the importance of taking care of one’s health and staying fit.
