CHILDLINE 1098 Service » 1098 Events » CHILDLINE @ Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2012

One of the most awaited events in Mumbai- The Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2012, once again lived up to the expectations of our fellow Mumbaikers! The 9th edition of this buoyant event saw participation from various parts of the world. Such was the enthusiasm that even on a chilly winter Sunday morning, thousands of Mumbaikers gathered to run for a cause.

For CHILDLINE, Mumbai Marathon has and continues to be a great platform for raising funds for underprivileged children and for creating a sense of unity amongst those supporting us. The event saw individuals walking and running with a lot of enthusiasm and gusto in support of CHILDLINE. Participants wore T-shirts saying 'DIAL 1098', a direct call for action for children in distress. The green flags and T-shirts caught the attention of all those who participated at the Marathon.

True spirit of sportsmanship was shown by the corporate employees. Vodafone had as many as 40 runners participating in the event and HDFC Bank employees ran for 'Power of Banking'- an initiative between CHILDLINE and HDFC Bank Ltd to take basic financial knowledge to street children.

CHILDLINE saw for the first time, 5 supporters from South Africa, who traveled all the way to run 42 kms- Full Marathon for us!
