New Delhi, October 28, 2018: Over 350 participants braved the hazy Sunday morning and ran to support the Apeejay Dwarka Campus’ initiative themed ‘Hum Veer Hain’ in the 12th Annual Mini Marathon. Residents of Delhi, varying from senior citizens to college students to school children, ran on the roads of Dwarka to show solidarity for the cause. The awareness run aimed at instilling the spirit of going beyond the call of duty and investing oneself for the growth & advancement of our nation.
Chief Guest, Mr Anto Alphonse, Dy. Commissioner of Police, Dwarka District, flagged the race open. Speaking on the occasion, he said, ''Achieving inclusive growth and development is a major initiative taken up by the Indian Government in a country as diverse as ours. It is the duty of every citizen to work towards societal transformation and it can only occur when all its citizens engage at equal levels with their ideas & abilities in a political & social environment that is all inclusive and cohesive.'
“We have been organising the Mini Marathon for the past 11 years. In its 12th edition, the theme is 'Hum Hain Veer', emphasising the need for citizens to respond to our call of duty towards our society, the people & our country – at all times will help in evolving India to a society that is just and progressive. I would like to thank all the participants of the marathon for making this a highly successful event”, said Prof. O.P. Khanduja, Executive Director, Apeejay School of Management, Dwarka Campus.
