Marathon held on the lines of Prime Minister Modi’s Beti Bachao campaign
M.O.P. Vaishnav College for Women that is celebrating its silver jubilee year, conducted “Penn Kalvi” a MINIATHON to mark the occasion. The proceeds from the run which was held on August 7th, at Island Grounds, Marina, was donated to the charity partners Agaram Foundation, run by actor Suriya and Devi Foundation, run by actor Vishal to the cause of educating girl children.
The guests for the event were AIG of Police, Govt. of Tamilnadu Asra Garg, who flagged off the 10 km run and Actor Vishal who flagged off the 5 km run. “A social awareness is necessary to create the impact and change that is necessary. I am doing my part to make the girls study and even if one person takes up the responsibility of educating one girl child, their life would change drastically with the power of education. There are many girls who are highly talented and who score well in their boards but are not able to continue due to various reasons and all they want is one support to continue further. This can be achieved with collective effort” said actor Vishal.
