It’s the most wonderful time of the year again; there’s a nipping chill in the air, the long nights overshadow the short days, and the cobwebbed jackets and hoodies emerge from the pile of untouched shelves in our wardrobes.
It’s also the time for one of the most highly anticipated events of December – the fourth edition of the Mumbai Juniorthon for which we are proud to have collaborated as title sponsors for 2018.
The first ever and largest annual running event for children & junior athletes in the city, Mumbai Juniorthon believes that getting dirty is healthier than playing with gadgets which makes children more vulnerable to Vitamin D deficiency, depression and chronic weight-related diseases.
“A healthy and active lifestyle is what we desire for our future generation,” says Ashish Shah, COO, Radius Developers. “A lifestyle that takes them away from the virtual world and helps them enjoy the real one with full zest and energy. It’s a matter of pride to be associated with anything that makes this dream come true. We, at Radius, are proud of Juniorthon for taking up such an initiative and making us a part of it”.
Mumbai Juniorthon 2018 has empanelled with Smile Foundation as Charity Partner that works towards Mission Education Programme for children from vulnerable backgrounds. The organisation impacts lives of over 600,000 children and their families every year, through more than 250 live welfare projects on education, healthcare, livelihood and women empowerment, spread across 950 remote villages and slums in 25 states of India. A portion of the registration fees is donated towards the cause, and by registering your child for the marathon, you encourage them to be a part of something bigger and make a difference in the world.
Keeping track of varying ages and experience level of the runners, Mumbai Juniorthon has organized five categories of races namely Openers (500 meters), Beginners (1 kilometer), Challengers (2 kilometers), Pros (4 kilometers), and Differently Abled (500 meters).
With a goal to encourage outdoor activities and physical fitness among children, Radius Developers invite you to Mumbai Juniorthon 2018.
More than 1900 children and junior athletes from over 117 schools to participate in this marathon. Celebrities like Mickey Mehta, Harshali Malhotra, Darsheel Safary & Avneet Kaur are attending this event to boost the participants.
Last year at the #MumbaiJuniorthon we had many famous #Bollywood celebrities gathered to cheer up our runners at the event. Come, be a part of India’s largest under 15 kids’ marathon, and witness the little ones push their limits on the streets with physical toughness and ironclad mental endurance, as they achieve awe-inspiring milestones in their lives.
