Expressing delight on the launch of the Fourth edition of Pinkathon Inspiring Partners Bajaj Electricals in Chennai, founder Milind Soman said, “We are very excited to bring Pinkathon to Chennai once again. We are confident the city and its people will support us and help make this run a success. Pinkathon is more than a Marathon. It is the seed of change and the beginning of a movement that is carried forward by a growing community of empowered women across India, who share a belief that a healthy family, a healthy nation and a healthy world begins with empowered women. The first step in empowerment is taking control of your own health, respecting yourself and understanding and celebrating the value you bring to your family and society. Empowerment is not a gift of society; it is a gift you give yourself.”
Reema Sanghavi, Managing Director, Maximus Events,“Besides Chennai, Pinkathon has already been held in various cities like Hyderabad, Kolkata, Pune, Delhi, Guwahati, and Mumbai in the year 2016. The multi-city national event has received an overwhelming expression of support with over 85,000 women of all ages, across different walks of life having participation in 8 cities in 2016. This number is expected to cross 1, 00,000 in 2017 with 9 cities. The campaign will be supported by an integrated communication plan which includes several pre- event activities like training runs for baby wearing mothers, first time women runners and cancer survivors. There will also be an extensive online campaign to reach out to the masses and help the movement grow. We have also introduced the traditional attired cycle really and the Fearless midnights run.”
