And Mumbai ran again

Every year in January, Mumbai runs in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon. This year too, WSD volunteers and supporters ran along with hundreds of young and old who were running for various causes and companies.

The Dream run which chugs or walks along the V.T. – Fountain-Marine Drive-Flyover-Metro stretch always attracts the maximum participants. There were people running for various causes for NGO’s like Akanksha, Aseema, Unmeed, Magic Bus, Unmeed, CRY, Friends Of Tribals, Asha, Nanhi Kali and many more.

It was a quiet moment when we passed the Trident and the runners applauded the staff that was standing outside for their courage during the Mumbai Terror Attacks.

Every year, our Regalwala Kalu gives us company. We have spotted him at various places during the Marathon. He really likes people and this year one of our volunteers who was at Chowpatty running the Half Marathon called and told me that Kalu was giving her company.
Luke Kenny, who starred in Rock On lent WSD his support and ran in the Dream Run.
