A fundraiser will be organised by Ambattur-based Bal Sanjeevani Cerebral Palsy Rehabilitation Centre on January 13.
Marathons and cycling trips will be a part of ‘Dawn to Dusk 2013’ which will be flagged off at IIT-Madras.
Marathoner Neville Jamshed Bilimoria and his teammates will cover close to 150 km in 12 hours.
The marathon, which will begin with a six-hour run at IIT-Madras by Neville, will be followed by six hours of non-stop cycling from IIT, past Mamallapuram and back.
The event is also open to children who can participate in the 500 metres, 1 km, 2 km, 3 km, and 4 km ‘Kid’s Run’ which will begin at 9.30 a.m.
“Funds raised from this event will help the Centre provide children with splints, wheelchairs, walking-aids, and Therasuits, among other immediate needs,” said Ravi Subramaniam, chairman of Bal Sanjeevani Cerebral Palsy Rehabilitation Centre.
The organisation provides treatment and rehabilitation to over 600 children.
