Jaipur, May 06, 2022.

Organising 1st of its kind, Dharav High School is all set to organize Run for Her,a Family Run on Mother’s Day to honour women across the country. In association with Jaipur Runner’s Club, the run will be held in two formats of 2km and 5km on May 8, 2022.

The run is scheduled to start from Dharav High School, R-7 & S-3, Sector – 6, Vidhyadhar Nagar at 6am and will end at the same point.

A brainchild of Chairperson Ms. Devyani Jaipuria, the run has been undertaken in tandem with her belief that fitness and awareness about fitness must start from schools.

At Dharav High School, we promote a holistic education where sports play an integral part in students’ learning outcomes. We believe that awareness about fitness as well as sensitizing students towards women’s issues should start at a young age. The overwhelming amount of registrations that we have received have assured us that parents echo our beliefs as well.”

To support this cause, Milind Soman, actor, model and fitness-enthusiast, will lead the run on May 8 at Dharav High School.
