NGOs, corporates brace for Mumbai Marathon

Jan 16 2013, 9:26am CST | by

Mumbai, Jan 16 (IANS) A 25-member contingent from Ion Foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of water purifying firm Ion Exchange has entered into a partnership with Mumbai-based NGO Muktangan to participate in the Mumbai Marathon Sunday.

Mumbai, Jan 16 — A 25-member contingent from Ion Foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of water purifying firm Ion Exchange has entered into a partnership with Mumbai-based NGO Muktangan to participate in the Mumbai Marathon Sunday.

This will be the 10th edition of the marathon.

Ion Exchange (India) Limited is a pioneer in water treatment in India, and Muktangan offers alternatives to orthodox educational practices, seeking to set up a sustainable model of quality education for poor sections of society.

"Ion Foundation team's run for the cause of education will help in providing timely and customised academic assistance, enabling children to become independent and well-informed citizens," said Rajesh Sharma, Director, Ion Foundation.

While some participants will hold placards with messages supporting education, others will carry umbrellas depicting the Ion Exchange product Zero B, a direct filter put on water taps to purify tap water and make it fit for drinking.

The 10th edition of the marathon is expected to see the participation of over 40,000 people, including corporate honchos like Anand Mahindra and Anil Ambani. Bollywood stars like Milind Soman and Rahul Bose are also expected to participate.

Considered to be the richest marathon in Asia, a special trophy has been instituted for the winners. The top Indian male and female finishers will take home Rs. 4,50,000 each.

The run is supported by the Indian Navy, the Government of Maharashtra and the Athletics Federation of India.

This year, the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon will offer an enhanced prize purse of USD 350,000, an increase equivalent of USD 10,000 over what was on offer last year.

The increase in prize money is towards the Indian prize fund and will benefit the Indian athletes in the full marathon.

The Full Marathon (42.197 km) has received 4,169 entries, a significant increase over last year's figure of 2,775.

While there was huge demand for places in the half-marathon, entries were restricted, finally closing at 12,742.

The Senior Citizens' Run will have 1,396 participants, while the champions with disability will see participation from 218 people.

Around 20,000 people have registered for the Dream Run.
