BE AWARE AND RUNMilind Soman

Youknow what they say about men with large feet? They run faster. Milind Soman, the actor, model and entrepreneur is busy organising a 10-city, women’s marathon to increase awareness about breast cancer. Milind has been serious about running for over a decade and has to his name a record of 1,500 km, across five States in 30 days to spread awareness about a cleaner, greener planet, because he is serious about the planet.

And because he is serious about cancer he announced the Pinkathon – Run To Lead, “It is India’s first ever 10-km run for women. If 50,000 people are running a marathon and 45,000 of them are men, many women may not be comfortable with the idea of running a marathon. But we wanted them to get out and be involved.” “Over the last few years, I have come to learn by experience the benefits of running as a perfect fitness regimen. It is an activity that not only promotes well being but also raises immunity levels and improves health, to help fight diseases like cancer. The reason we have chosen this event is because running addresses most of the top 10 ways to help prevent breast cancer,” says the runner who has received a lot of support from social networks.
