Rotary-Arneja Walkathon – 4th February

March 11, 2018 divider image

It was a fine chilly morning of a departing winter on Sunday; yet, thousands of Nagpurians flocked city’s most peaceful and tranquil spot — Joggers’ Street — for stealing the show in the Rotary-Arneja Walkathon and Dream Run 2018. More than 7000 of the excited fitness freaks from various parts reached CM’s official residence – Ramgiri, Civil Lines, before the dawn.

  

Clad in black T-shirt and green cap, the professionals from all walks of life along with cheerful youths exulted the one-of-a-kind occasion in style and clicked selfies and groupies. Live mascot “Sherdil” and performance of a band from IGGMC became the icing on the cake to further heighten experience and fun.

They were all geared up to support various social causes and to promote and spread awareness about fitness by participating in the event. This year too, the 93-year-old Peshotan Mehta, who has been participating in the event since its inception, made his mark for the 15th straight year. On the other, relatively younger fitness enthusiasts made the atmosphere lively by cheering, dancing and laughing out loud to make it a memorable morning. The food courts, which offered healthy snacks, gave a perfect start to the day for everyone.

 

This year, the walkathon was unique in many ways. Not just the participants but also the school and colleges joined the hands to spread the message. Students from Centre Point School, BVM, Modern School, South Point School, St. Xaviers, Jain International, Royal Gondwana and Wonderland School carried placard with a message: “say no to plastic”.
