RUNNING FOR A CAUSE
For a long time, I’ve been wanting to do something that will make a difference in the lives of people as well as impact the Society.
Personally, Sports has always been something that runs deep into everything I do. But all these years, I’ve just played and won accolades for myself, little did I contribute to Humanity.
Whilst in a conversation, a friend of mine ignited in me the thought of running a Half-Marathon. This sparked in me the thought of ‘Running for a Cause’ and contribute into the lives of the people.
The New Delhi Half-Marathon was an ideal opportunity to Run and I instantly decided to myself for the event. For me, it was the Biggest Catalyst of Change in my life wherein I would Run and run for a cause. This is was my first ever Half-Marathon and it was a challenge as I had only a month to train. Whereas, in contrast, an average person requires at least a minimum of 2-3 months to prepare.
Whilst training, I realised that this is going to be an uphill task and I needed to push myself harder each day. Along the way, I incurred a few injuries but that didn’t hinder my preparation.
Denzel Washington said – ‘To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did’ and this this statement kept me going during my preparation for the run.
We as humans always tend to receive things, seldom give. Therefore, I wanted to take this opportunity to give back to the ones less fortunate than myself by running the New Delhi Half-Marathon for Rahab which is a rehabilitation-home for women.
I was running to raise funds to restore, rehabilitate and empower women and to help them to start a new chapter in their lives. The realisation to share my story would mean to share my experience and inspire others to push along in life’s journey. Nelson Mandela famously said – You never fail, you either win or learn.
