Jan 23, 2016: Mantri Developers in association with the United Sisters Foundation organised a 3k pre-run in the city today, as a part of the Pinkathon. Blame it on the modern lifestyle, fitness today has become a major concern especially amongst the working population. Hence there is greater need to opt for a healthy lifestyle. Pinkathon is an initiative that encourages people to incorporate a fitness programme into their daily lives by promoting simple community activities like walking and running.
The event saw a lot of enthusiasm from over 400 employees of Mantri Developers participating in the run. The run was flagged off by celebrated runner Mr. Milind Soman at the Mantri House ending at the Queen’s statue in Cubbon Park.
Shreyank HM emerged as the winner of the run with a run time of 12 minutes and with the runner-up being Meghna Dutta with a run time of 14 minutes and 37 seconds.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sushil Mantri, Chairman & Managing Director, Mantri Developers Pvt. Ltd, said, “Modern lifestyle is leading to several health issues in India, especially amongst women. This is indicative of social growth of the country. I feel that women empowerment begins with her health. Fitness plays a key role in leading a healthy lifestyle and keeping several diseases at bay. At Mantri Developers we encourage our employees to opt for a healthy lifestyle and the Pinkathon pre-run is one of such initiatives.
Mr. Milind Soman, Founder, Pinkathon, said, “I am overwhelmed at the response, being aware is the key and initiatives like these go a long way in creating healthy work environment, especially for women.
