Braving the rains, 450 students of St John the Evangelist High School, Marol, Mumbai, ran a mini marathon for the cause “Save Aarey Forest”. They covered a stretch of 4 kms right from Aarey Colony to the school grounds, winding down the streets of Marol Maroshi Road right up to Marol.
The mini marathon was organized to make the youngsters, boys and girls aged between 8-15, the future citizens of the city, aware of the fact that they too have a collective responsibility in saving the environment and conserving it.
The Monsoon Marathon was truly an enriching and inspiring event wherein some students triumphed, while others were quite satisfied as they attempted to complete the entire marathon.
