Smile Foundation participated in the World 10K Bangalore Marathon and campaigned for the cause of girl child education. This was the first marathon for the Garden city and saw huge participation from the Bangaloreans. Participating in marathons is an effort from Smile Foundation to bring the privileged mass on a single platform to support a cause. And to make them aware that a proactive effort can bring difference in lives of many who are less privileged.
Smita Kalappa, National Director-Child For Child, Smile Foundation speaking about the participation said, ” We made an honest effort to sensitize people about a very alarming issue of education for the girl child, we encouraged people to make a fitter tomorrow by understanding their social responsibility as an individual and connect with the cause close to their heart .We encouraged people to be the change. As an event this certainly is a great way to make us think that it’s time we be one and bring the change.”
Smile acknowledges the gesture individuals showed in supporting the cause.
