[Kolkata, West Bengal, November, 18] “The real purpose of running is isn’t to win a race. It’s to test the limits of human heart” – Bill Bowerman. Against this backdrop Bhumi, an NGO which works for the education of the underprivileged organised Bhumi India Run on 18th November at Nalban Park, Salt Lake City, Kolkata.
Running enthusiasts brave the early morning winter chill to run for the cause and made the event a success. Bhumi as an organisation believes that every underprivileged child deserves quality education. They have transformed this conviction into a volunteering opportunity for India’s youth, launching a snowball effect of young talents nurturing the upcoming talents on the path to an educated, poverty-free India. Thus, Bhumi India Run presents an opportunity to spread the awareness of their cause and at the same time support their primary cause i.e education for the underprivileged.
