In order to raise awareness on the issue of Food and Water Wastage, SRF organized “SRF Marathon 2019” running for the cause to Reduce Food and Water Wastage. The tagline for the Marathon was Sweat. Smile. Repeat.
As a part of the marathon, SRF conducted pre-events for creating a buzz across the campus. The pre-events included pushup challenge for boys and plank challenge for girls. Two superheroes were selected from each division who were then the torchbearers for their respective divisions during the marathon.
SRF Marathon was conducted on 13th January 2019. The event commenced at 6am in the morning and was flagged off by former SRF members Manish Jain, Devangshi Saraf and Vagisha Agarwal. All the participants were gathered in the JRM grounds. After having a 15-minute warm-up session, the participants were given instructions regarding the safety measures that they had to follow during the marathon.
The marathon was a 7 km route starting from Dena Bank at Vile Parle west and ended at NM stationery. SRF volunteers were present all along the route to ensure the safety of the participants. All participants were given refreshments in the form of biscuits, energy drinks and water along the route. After finishing the marathon, the participants were made to relax. To grace the event, there was a performance by Treblemakers – the music club of NMIMS Mumbai. This was followed by the prize distribution ceremony.
The enthusiasm with which the students had participated in the Marathon was tremendous. There were many sponsors for the event – Talwakars as Fitness Partner, Redbull as Energy Partner, Ocean Beverages as Refreshment Partner, Wowffers as Offers Partner, EsselWorld as Entertainment Partner, Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital as Medical Partner, Couture Class as Clothing Partner, United Strength and Health Mantras as Associate Partners.
