IndiaOnline.in Joins Hands with Delhi Police and Ladli Foundation for Half Marathon to Raise Awareness on Women's Safety


New Delhi, Delhi, India

The www.IndiaOnline.in Network has announced a tie-up with the ‘Run for Laadli’ Half Marathon – a joint initiative of Delhi Police & Ladli Foundation with an aim to raise awareness on critical issues like Women’s Safety & Gender Inequality which have been plaguing the society for ages.

The Half Marathon ‘Run for Laadli’ will be held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Sunday – December 17th at 7 am. It will be inaugurated by the Home Minister of India, Shri Rajnath Singh and will be attended by several Cabinet Ministers, famous dignitaries including personalities from Bollywood.

The Time-Chipped Marathon will start at 8 am, in three categories viz. 21 kms, 11 kms & 5 kms. Successful finishers in each category will be given prize money with a trophy & certificate, the highest prize money being Rs.1 lakh in the 21 km category run.

Several corporate houses, NGOs & organisations have come forward to support this initiative. These include Ola Cabs, Accessible India, ONGC, Indian Oil Corporation, OGL Gopal Corp, NBCC, EIL etc.

Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Raj Kumar Jalan, CEO & MD of the www.IndiaOnline.in Network says, “As an organisation, committed to the betterment of the society, we are proud to be associated with Run for Laadli in their crusade against Gender Inequality. We invite corporate houses & companies from all over the country to join our fight.
 
Founder of Laadli Foundation Trust and National Award Winner & Social Activist Mr. Devendra Kumar, says, “Almost every day, local newspapers carry stories of rape or harassment and in a country like India with a population of over 12 to 18 million some such cases are inevitable but the recent wave of violence against women has provoked a spate of outraged reports. Reports say that Delhi had seen 25 cases of rape, including several brutal gang rapes, and 42 "molestations" in few months. It has now become a big shame for all Delhiites to hold the tag of Rape Capital. We look to change this scenario with the creation of a Laadli Rakshak team across the country.”
