Emil Zatopek famously said ” If you want to win something, run 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon.” That is in short, the long and short of running a marathon. But it elevates the “experience” that Emil pointed out to a profound level when you are running for a cause. We would love you to do it with Bal Utsav, to run for education, for we believe that #EducationMakesAllTheDifference. Your effort and participation channel through trusted hands as you run with Bal Utsav, as it is empanelled with India Cares Foundation – the official Philanthropy Partner of TCS World 10K Bengaluru 2016, as a participating NGO.
But just don’t take our word for it. Here are the proven benefits that all those who have run with us reiterate, as they pitched in their might to make Education make the difference.
1. Improves your Health and Well-being
That is pretty much obvious, once you have committed to the very act of running for the TCS World 10k Bengaluru Marathon. For most, the very period of training for your run ( by running regularly, of course) comes as their greatest stress-buster from the regimented corporate routines, and does amazing things to one’s well-being. And you feel it working on you as you go about your daily tasks, once you start off with the run.
2. Supporting the cause of Education for All Children
Running for a cause is always exhilarating. It magically becomes the wind beneath your wings as you set your paces at the run for the cause that you are running for, it becomes your very motivation for the event. And you soon realise that you haven’t stayed motivated enough this way since a long time, and it has done wonders to yourself – physically and mentally.
3. It can help your Career
Across the world, companies are acknowledge the value of Volunteerism and how it impacts immediate communities and nations as a whole. At Bal Utsav, we believe it is also equally important to put on record the amazing effort that you personally put in, to make this a better planet. Which is why you will get a recommendation on your LinkedIn profile recommending your spirit of Social responsibility and driving passion & desire to promote education in India.
Get on your Running Shoes. Get Up and Run. Run with Bal Utsav for the TCS World 10k Bengaluru Marathon 2016.
