As the dawn of 23rd December 2018 peeked across the horizon, the MMRDA Grounds at BKC was bustling with electric energy. More than 4000 kids assembled for one of the biggest athletic events for children in the city of Mumbai, and the excitement was contagious. History was about to be made, as we presented the fourth edition of the iconic Radius Mumbai Juniorthon 2018 – one that would be a series of unforgettable moments in the life of our little marathoners running for the pursuit of fitness and good health.
To flag off the first race that began early in the morning at 6.30 am, was Sanjay Chhabria, Managing Director of Radius Developers. Kids of all ages and levels of experience participated in the grand event, with tracks ranging from 500 meters to 4 kilometers. We saw sheer determination and skill on the field as beginners and pros alike made their way to the finish line. The differently abled participants showed us all what it meant to be true sportspersons, as they blazed the tracks with their joy and zeal all the way, conquering milestones and not letting themselves be shackled to any barriers whatsoever.
Radius Juniorthon 2018 was quite the star-studded affair, as Bollywood actress, Amyra Dastur, child actors and artists like Shivansh Kotia, Raj Anadkat and Divyansh Dwivedi made an appearance and expressed the importance of running and keeping fit. Their motivation and cheers kept everyone in high spirits through the exciting day.
Speaking of excitement, we also had a day full of fun activities prepared for the little ones. They had a gala time posing for caricatures and writing heartfelt letters to Santa Claus for their special Christmas wishes. From enriching workshops to a mind-blowing magic show performed by India’s youngest magician, Swarang, the young sprinters were surrounded by entertainment galore.
We believe in the importance of a healthy lifestyle that needs to be cultivated early in a child’s life. As title sponsors, we are proud to have been an integral part of the iconic Radius Mumbai Juniorthon 2018. Watching the participants gleam with happiness as they flaunted their glinting medals and grand prizes will forever be cherished as a true testament to the successful initiative that it was.
